Knights of the Thistle: a royal quest for loyalty and identity

23 June 2017

Abstract

The history of the exiled Stuart dynasty and their supporters, known as Jacobites, has held an enduring and romantic fascination for generations. These newly commissioned essays from historians and curators* from a variety of disciplines present the story of the Jacobites through the prism of the surviving material and visual culture. They bring new perspectives to the history of the Jacobites. By drawing together spectacular objects from collections in the UK and beyond - including paintings, costumes, jewellery, documents, weapons and glassware - the book features an array of treasures brought together especially for the exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.
