The Stone of Destiny has been the cause of controversy and contention for many centuries. Ever since it was taken from Scone in Scotland by King Edward I of England in 1296, then placed at Westminster Abbey in London, England, there have been calls for its return. The legend claims that it is Jacob’s Pillow, spoken of in the Old Testament, and if true it is one of the most important biblical relics on display anywhere in the world. Without doubt it has been used as the coronation stone of the monarchs of England and, subsequently, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, since the time of King Henry IV in 1399. However, the prestige of the stone draws its history much further back, and also heralds it as the coronation stone of the Kingdom of the Scots as they were laying claim to land throughout ancient Scotland, Ireland and Spain, or so the mythos would have us believe.
