When William came back from France, he found that his parents had died at the hands of the English army, and that made him extremely angry and vengeful. Whether or not he had a wife, or if the wife was attacked by English is questionable, but what does seem to be true is that the English soldiers were raping the Scottish women. The idea was to get more English blood into the country, but resulting in English babies.

He was finally betrayed again and handed over to the throne to be tortured and killed.
