Well this is somewhat deceptive, they show what he looked like at time of death, after leprosy had advanced, not what he looked like during battles in his prime.

He looks like Robert's Father, The Leper in Braveheart 1995

Not really a fair comparison is it. Depicting how he looked at the time of death disfigured by leprosy. Why not take that same forensic talent and shave-off some years in the early prime stages of his life. Then, maybe he would look more like the statues.

This is the third reconstruction I have seen from the cast, and none of them look remotely similar. I am very familiar with victim reconstructions from skulls, and generally, speaking they ARE quite accurate as to most features...some are uncanny when a photo is given by the family for comparison after the victim has been identified...these three I have seen of Robert the Bruce are widely different.Battles were fierce, and hand to hand combat even of Knights....no doubt the bone gouge and bone scarring was the result of a battle wound. I remember earlier historians wrote died of syphillis but the bone of the skull does not look like it. There was even more poltiical, disinformation THEN there thermeis now and we all know how THAT works in modern times. Human motivations dont change much over time...sadly there is no portrait that could give more information. SYbil, Francis, , PhD

Bruce lived to be 55 that’s why he looks so old. Most of the battles in the movies and stories took place in his late 20’s early 30’s

There are almost as many descendants of the Bruce here in the comments section as there are reincarnations of Cleopatra :-)

English forensics making a face moulding of Robert the Bruce, one of their most hated enemies. Im pretty sire no matter what they would've made it seem like he did have leprosy.

No one cares what Robert the Bruce looked like. What’s more handsome is a nations freedom, independence and self-rule under its own identity and destination.

Robert de Bruice, a Norman Lord, fighting a king from Norman England.
Funny how the Normans used Englishmen and Scotsman to fight their wars creating animosities that echo down the centuries.
