"Sir Andrew Leslie, having assembled his friends and vassals, came down from his stronghold, and gave battle to his opponents at Braco, about two miles from Bennachie, 22d January 1420. In the heat of the action, his wife, Isabel Mortimer, came and threw herself between the combatants, entreating them to stop the carnage. But her efforts were vain.
