Henry de Bohun was the nephew of Sir Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford and Essex, and former constable of England.
The rash, young Henry riding ahead of his companions spied King Robert the Bruce without armor on horse inspecting the field of battle. Perceiving this to be his moment of glory, young Henry charged at The Bruce with his lance couched.
Just prior to impact of the lance, King Robert pulled his horse aside and swung his axe at Henry’s helmet with full force. The axe split the helmet and Sir Henry’s head. Sir Henry was dead by the time he hit the ground.
The reckless charge by deBohun against one of the greatest warriors of the 14th Century was an ominous prelude to the Battle of Bannockburn which the English would lose.
