Edward I returned south from Berwick in the autumn of 1296 confident that Scotland had been brought under his direct lordship. The campaign against Scotland had diverted Edward from waging war on the continent against the Scots' ally, King Philip of France. Over the winter Edward prepared a decisive blow. Armies would be sent to both Gascony and Flanders and Philip's north-east frontier would be threatened by an extensive, and expensive, coalition of Edward's allies. These ambitions demanded the mobilisation of resources from across Edward's dominions. Like England, Wales, and Ireland, Scotland was expected to contribute money and manpower in pursuit of Edward's continental interests. In England these demands would produce the greatest crisis of Edward's reign. In Scotland they would spark lasting resistance to his rule.
