A poorly armed but highly motivated Scots army marched out of Edinburgh to do battle with the English at Pinkie – near Edinburgh , they were swiftly annihilated. The battle was sparked by English demands that Edward V1 of England [ age 10] should marry Mary Queen of Scots [ age 5 ] – an event known as the Rough Wooing. It was estimated that 15,000 Scots were killed, 1500 captured and English losses amounted to only 500 killed or wounded.
