One the events of Mandalore’s recent, painful past, The Great Purge, where the Empire killed and exiled many Mandalorians and took all of their Beskar, bears a resemblance to Scottish history and its turbulent relation with British rulers -- specifically, to the Battle of Culloden of 1746, the swansong of the ancestral Scottish clan structure.
