During the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715, Lord Lovat assisted the King's troops in the seizure of Inverness. He changed sides, however, joining Prince Charles Stuart, the 'Young Pretender', in 1745. On 9 March 1747, he was taken from the Tower to Westminster Hall for trial and found guilty. He was beheaded by axe on 9 April 1747 at the age of 80, the last person in Britain to be executed in this way.
