Robert the Bruce was a king of Scotland who lived in the late thirteenth to early fourteenth centuries.

In 2269, Montgomery Scott sarcastically mentioned his "expectation" that Robert the Bruce and Louis XIV would follow Abraham Lincoln aboard the USS Enterprise. Captain Kirk overheard Scott and said that if Bruce or Louis XIV were beamed aboard, the Enterprise crew would render appropriate honors to each of them. (TOS: "The Savage Curtain")

Robert the Bruce is one of the major national heroes of the Scots, having successfully won their freedom from English rule. His life overlapped with that of William Wallace (aka "Braveheart")
