Scottish Royal Jewels
« on: September 03, 2005, 09:08:08 AM »
Now, I'm sure plenty of people out there (<ahem>emeraldeyes<ahem>) are interested in learning about the Scottish royal jewels. Sadly, my knowlege of them is very lacking, so anyone he can post pics or info please do so! I will post a pic of the Crown of Scotland, made for James V in 1540.

The sceptre was a gift from Pope Alexander VI to James IV in 1494 and the sword was a gift from Pope Julius II  to James in 1507.
