Millions have been watched a part of Scottish history brought to life with Outlaw King on Netflix.
But the real life story behind Scotland’s past is to be told in a new three-part BBC Scotland series.
Rise of the Clans will see Neil Oliver travel back in time to reveal the real life Game of Thrones – the story of Scotland’s ancient clans.
As Rise of the Clans shows it is a blood-soaked saga of battles and feuds, loyalty and betrayal, love and death set against the country’s wild mountains and glens.
In the first episode, to be broadcast on Monday, 3 December, Neil follows the clans as they rally behind Robert the Bruce in his against-all-odds bid to win Scotland’s crown.
After their crucial role in crushing the English at Bannockburn in 1314, Bruce rewards the loyal Chiefs with land and titles. They will rise to shape the fate of kingdom in the centuries to come.
It will be shown on BBC One Scotland from 9-10pm.
The following week, Neil follows the rise of Clan Stewart to become Scotland’s Royal dynasty.
It’s the blood-soaked tale of a bitter family feud. In a vicious contest, using clan power to plot, manoeuvre and murder their way to power, the story culminates with the dramatic assassination of King James I below a tennis court in Perth, 1437.
Neil traces this family feud through clan combat, brutal betrayal and royal romances to the brutal torture and execution of the last rival Stewart, Walter Atholl, when the king’s widowed Queen Joan wreaks a terrible revenge for his treachery.
