Description

‘Where to make the king (or queen): the importance of place in Scottish inaugurations and coronations from 1214 to 1651’

By Dr Lucinda Dean, University of the Highlands and Islands

Where did the Scots make their monarchs? The obvious and most commonly given answer to this question is of course Scone, but in many ways, the truth is far more complicated. From the thirteenth century to 1651, the inaugurations and coronations of Scottish monarchs actually took place in five different settings with Scone falling out of favour after the murder of James I in Perth on 1437. This talk will consider the waxing and waning of Scone and neighbouring Perth as a combined ceremonial and political centre, particularly under the early Stewarts, and the impact that such decisions had on the ceremonies of ‘king-making’ in medieval and early modern Scotland.
