Battle of Flodden Field

The Battle of Flodden Field was fought in the county of Northumberland in northern England on 9 September 1513, between an invading Scots army under King James IV and an English army commanded by the Earl of Surrey. It ended in victory for the English army, and was the largest battle (in terms of numbers) fought between the two nations. John Huntar, 14th Laird of Hunterston was killed in battle fighting with his King, James IV. He was also killed in the battle, becoming the last British monarch to suffer such a fate.
