THE CORONATION CHAIR, WESTMINSTER ABBEY Under the seat of the Coronation Chair is the Stone of Scone, the emblem of power of the Scottish princes. Tradition says Jacob once used it as a pillow. Edward I brought it to England in 1297, in token of the subjugation of Scotland. Since that time every English monarch has been crowned in this chair except Edward V, who was never crowned, but was murdered in the Tower byorder ofhis uncle, the Duke ofGloucester.
