Royal Arms of Scotland ; seated on a throne, com- 
posed of the long thin necks, heads, and legs of dogs (?) or 
lions ; in the r. h. a sword, held obliquely outwards ; his feet 
on a projecting footboard or stool, diapered. Background dia-

Laing's 5ic///. Catal., No. 7 ; Wyon, I.e., p. no. Laing attributes this 
seal, notwithstanding its date of use, to the national party in Scotland 
" after the surrender of John Balliol in 1296, when the great seal used by 
that sovereign was withdrawn ; his authority was, however, still recognised 
in Scotland." It appears very improbable that this is a seal of John Balliol : 
the details of the throne seem to point to a period subsequent to his 
reign ; and the use of the genitive Reg[is] on the fragmentary legend 
confirms this view. Douet d'Arcq (No. 10,253) calls this seal (the 
original impression being in the Archives dc rEynpire attached to a 
document dated 23 Feb. 1301) the " Sceau do la Regence," and there is 
a clause in the deed designating it as " Sigillum regimini Scocie depitta- 
tum.^'' From the general French style of art exhibited in the design, and 
its resemblance in some respects to the seal of Philip III., King of the 
French, there can be little doubt that it was made in France, and in that 
respect is, of course, connected with John, who retained the title of King 
of Scots while in e.xile in that country. The original seal bears on the 
reverse, as a counterseal, an impression of the seal of John de Soules, Knt., 
the " Custos regni " at this period. For an impression of this, see xlvii. 
1175 (or Laing's Catal., No. 750), which will be described in its proper 
place further on.

The use of the slipped trefoil as a stop betw. the words of

The barrel borne in the arms is probably in reference to the 
office of king's cellarer or butler. The Barony of Kinnaird 
in later times was held by the tenure of a penny Scots yearly 
and keeping the king's cellar of ale whenever the court

MALCOLM IIL, called'' Canmore," King of Scots. 
A.D., 1057-1093. 

False seal of arms. 

17.218. [a.d. 1065.] Plaster cast from an imperfect im- 
pression in brown wax, in H. M. Record Office, Excheq. 
Treas. of Receipts, Scots Documents, Box 87, No. 19. Only 
the centre remains. About 2| in. when perfect, [cvii. 89.] 

A shield of arms: a lion rampant, the tail curved inwards, 
within a double tressure flory counterflory, ROYAL ARMS OF 
ScorL.\ND. Within a cusped panel of which the points 
remain on the 1. h. side. 

This seal is believed to be one of the forgeries of the 
notorious John Harding, see note to No. 14,808, on p. 13. 
The charter to which it is attached is an acknowledgment 
by Malcolm of Edward the Confessor, king of England, as 
his over-lord, 5 June, A.D. 1065. See Bain's Calendar of 
Documents relating to Scotland, vol. i. p. I, No. I.

No. 12. [civ. 60, 61.]

This (which should precede No. 14,816), is an impression 
of the seal to which attention is directed in the notes to 
Nos. 14,816, p. if), and 14,828, p. 19. If accurately attributed 
to King James I., and not (as may be the ca.se), improperly 
appended, within recent times, to the document there 
described, it forms the first seal of the king, and No. 14,816 
becomes the second seal.

shield of arms in the niche on the dex. side is wanting ; that 
on the sin. is quarterly ; i, 4, RoYAL Arms ok Scotland ;

jewelled coronet and cap ornamented with crocketed bands 
or hoops, and with three fleurs-de-lis and two small leaves, 
or trefoils betw. them. Supporters : dex. a unicorn, crowned, 
gorged with a coronet, and chained to the mount, the tail

H. The king on a horse galloping to the r. h. on a hilly 
mount, probably intended for a landscape of the city of 
Edinburgh. The rider is crowned, face turned to the r., and 
wears a breastplate or cuirass, and plate armour, high boots, 
spur ; right hand uplifted, wearing a gauntlet, and holding a 
broad sword with wide channelled blade, not carried up 
beyond the field of the design but stopping abruptly at the 
circle which holds the legend. Saddle ; breast-cloth bordered, 
and charged with a thistle slipped and leaved ; caparison on 
the flanks bordered, and charged with a rose en soleil. In 
the field, over the horse's head a fleur-de-lis, over the tail, a 
portcullis, chained and ringed.

This seal, which should follow No. 14,840, appears to have 
been afterw. adopted by king Charles I., see No. 14,841, by 
alteration of the king's name. In other respects the descrip- 
tion there given will stand equally as well as the above. 

Wyon, /. c, pp. 247, 248, where it is called the " third seal "of James VI., 
Engr. in Anderson's SeUctus Diploinatum Scotia Thesaurus, pi. xciii. 



CHARLES I. 



There appears to be a transference of ideas in the two 
seals of this king for Scotland. J.VMES VI. used the side 
which bears the king's effigy riding on a horse as the obverse, 
and that bearing the achievement of royal arms as the 
reverse. This is indicated by the legends respectively em- 
ployed ; the royal style and titles appearing on the obv. ; the 
text, motto, or invocation on the rev. Charles I. places the 
royal style on the heraldic side of the seals, whereby it 
becomes the obverse, and the motto on that hearing the 
mounted effigy, thereby making it the re'.erse. Hence the 



650 CATALOGUE OF SEALS, 

arrangement of 0. and It. in the descriptions of Nos. 14,841, 
14,842, must be corrected. The same remarks apply to the 
description of the seal of Oliver, No. 14,844.

some of the minuter details, and in the measurements and 
distances bctw. some of the accessories.

pendant badge, and the Garter with inscribed motto and 
George. Supporters, dex. a unicorn, sin. a lion rampant 
guardant, crowned, etc., as before, each holding a spear and

flag as described before. Below the Garter, on the dex. a 
thistle branch, on the sin. a rose branch, each slipped and 
leaved. Below these, and behind the George, a label or 
ribbon inscribed with the royal motto : — 

DIEV ■ ET • MON • DROIT. 

.... LIEL • II • ET ■ MARIA • D • G ■ SCOT • ANG 

ET • REG • FID • D • 

The numeral II. after the king's name in the legend, is 
correctly applied to William III. of England, there having 
been but one previous king of Scots thus named. 

^-. The king in classical armour, with flowing cloak and 
sword, riding on a horse springing to the r. h., and ac- 
companied by the queen, in the background, also riding. On 
a landscape showing the city and environs of Edinburgh. 
The design is derived from, and is a fairly correct copy of, the 
rev. of the Great Seal of William and Mary for England, see 
No. 628, Vol. i. p. 70. In the field over the horse's tail a 
flower, slipped and leaved, ensigned with a crown.

similar to the rev. of the great seal of George II. for 
England. In the field over the horse's tail a thistle and 
rose, leaved, and grafted on one stem.

SCOTLAND: — SEALS OF SOVEREIGNS (APPENDIX). 653 



This appears to be, for the most part, an adaptation or 
imitation of the obv. of the Great Seal of George III. for 
Great Britain, No. 688, Vol. i. p. 79. 

li. An ornamentally shaped shield of the ROYAL ARMS 
of George III. for Scotland used after a.d. 1800 when the 
use of the Royal Arms of France was discarded, viz. 
quarterly; 1,4, SCOTLAND, 2, ENGLAND, 3, Ireland ; overall 
an escutcheon of pretence, BRUNSWICK impaling LUNEBERG, 
on a point in point Saxony, ensigned with an imperial 
crown (called by Burke, Gen. Arm., p. Ix. an "Electoral 
Bonnet," and drawn as such), and surmounted by an escut- 
cheon of Charlemagne, for the Arch-Treasurer of the Holy 
Roman Empire. Cf. No. 685, Vol. i. p. 79. 

The shield is encircled with the Collar of the Order of the 
Thistle with oval pendant badge of St Andrew standing 
bound in front of his saltire cross. This is in turn encircled 
with the Garter, inscribed with the customary.motto, and with 
the George depending below the badge described above. 
Ensigned with a crown, the labels or ribbons of which are 
inscribed : — 

IN DEFENC6. 

Below the badge of St. Andrew, on the dex. a thistle flower 
and shamrock or trefoil, on the sin. a rose, each slipped and 
leaved. Supporters, dcx., an unicorn, sin., a lion rampant 
guardant, each crowned, etc., as in previous seals, and holding 
lances with flags bearing the UNION Jack, or united crosses, 
as in No. 688. The supporters rest upon a carved scroll or 
estrade, over which is laid a ribbon inscribed with the Royal 
motto : — 

DIEU • ET MON DROIT. 

Legend in continuation of the Royal style ; — 

ET IN TERRA ECCLESI/E ANGLIGAN/E ET HIBERNIOE 
SUPREMUM CAPUT. 

Preceded by an uncertain device. 

Carved borders. 

Note that this seal was probably made after 1S17, because 
the impression of a seal No. 14,847, p. 25, attached to a 
charter dated in that year, seventeen years after the Union, 
bears the shield of arms which was abandoned in 1800. This 
should follow No. 14,848.

0. A copy or adaptation of the rev. of the Great Seal of this 
king for England, see No. 6go, with a thistle flower, slipped 
and leaved, introduced into the hind corner of the saddle 
cloth, in place of the rose, and a similar device at the 
bcgining of the legend. 

R. As described in No. 14,850. Dele the words "and

p. Identical with the rev. of the Great Seal of the king for 
England, see No. 701, Vol. i., p. 81. 

H. A copy of the rev. of the Great Seal of George IV. for 
Scotland, see No. 14,850, with several small variants in the 
design ; the principal of which are the design in the badges 
of the Orders of the Thistle and Garter. Here St. Andrew 
bears a nimbus and stands behind his saltire cross, holding it 
up with his hands ; in that of George IV., the Saint has a 
radiancy over the head, and is in front of the saltire. The 
attitude of St. George in combat with the dragon differs from 
that on George IV.'s seal. The treatment of the crosses on 
the flags held up on lances by the supporters in the seals of 
George IV. and William IV. is identical, but differs from that 
of previous seals.
