In 1304 King Edward of England marched his army into Scotland to capture Stirling Castle. After weeks of siege several war machines were brought to the castle including Warwolf, an enormous trebuchet. Trebuchets were huge catapults that could launch rocks and other missiles over huge distances and they were designed to destroy castle walls, allowing soldiers to enter and attack. Warwolf was so fearsome that the Scots were intimidated into surrendering the castle. Despite this, King Edward ordered Warwolf to fire and the castle walls were smashed to enforce the point that Edward was now in control of Scotland.
