  1. The SFX used when the English are shooting the Scots at the Battle of Stirling Bridge was later borrowed from Core Design on the opening sequence of their video game Tomb Raider 2 (1997). Additionally, Braveheart won an Academy Award (1996) for best sound effects editing.

  2. At the beginning, a little girl, Murron, gives William a flower. It is not just a hint of their future love, the flower in question is a Scottish thistle: the national symbol of Scotland. Murron is "donating" Scotland to the child who will one day free it from tyranny.
