Lanarkshire was a key battleground for many important battles throughout the ages, including the Battle of Langside (1568) where Mary Queen of Scots was defeated. In the 17th and 18th century Lanarkshire prospered from the American colonies settling in Glasgow, this propelled Lanarkshire to be one of the most industrially developed counties in Scotland."
