Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons Wiki

DunBroch is the name of the Kingdom in the Pixar film Brave where King Fergus, Queen Elinor, Princess Merida, and Hamish, Hubert and Harris live in.


The Kingdom of DunBroch's exact location and size of the territory has not been emphasized, but it is shown to take place across the Scottish Highlands. A map of Scotland, briefly seen in Brave, reveals DunBroch to be somewhere to the North of Loch Ness and the West of modern day Inverness.


The DunBroch, MacGuffin, Macintosh, and Dingwall clans were once enemies locked in constant war, but when Vikings, Romans and Northern invaders threatened them from the seas the 4 clans joined together under the sword of Fergus to defend there lands. Eventually the clans succeeded in protecting their lands from the invaders and formed the Kingdom of DunBroch and made the clan leaders Macintosh, MacGuffin and Dingwall their lords of the kingdom then crowned Fergus their king and Elinor their queen.

Role in the Crossover

DunBroch is the homeland of Merida DunBroch. It has been mentioned in the film that Vikings are considered invaders that led to the Kingdom's genesis, so the Vikings of Berk could be considered enemies to the four clans in present times. Given the natural accents of the adults in Berk, it could be possible that their locations could be too far off (especially with access to dragons). Apart from this, it could also be possible for DunBroch and Berk to be allies, along with Corona, Arendelle, and other locations.
