    The movie Braveheart, although having SOME facts close to the truth, is mostly a made-up history.

    He WAS a real person. I believe the history channel did a special on him, and it revealed that, in fact, he was not some peasant farmer but actually a member of the noble class and training as a clergyman at the time he became enraged by the British and called to action. He actually was from the city rather than from the country, and Scotland itself was actually not a little backwaters place but quite similar to England in many ways. I wish I could remember the name of the show though...

    Look up Scotland, Paisley Abbey, William Wallace. His sister had a mansion outside (today within) Paisley.

    Yes he was a real figure but little that is very certain is known about him as a person.

    He was real.

    He was completely different from the movies, Mel Gibson is an idiot who hates Jews and the English.
