Battle of Culloden
April 16th 1746

The last battle of the Jacobite rising and on the British isles. The forces of Prince Charles were defeated by those of the Duke of Cumberland (Butcher Cumberland).

The defeat not only ended the aspirations of the Stuart dynasty, but also led to the attempted destruction of Highland culture, the clan system and the Gaelic language.
