Linlithgow Palace Original Steel Engraved Print by Brown-Forrest - AH58-11164
Description : Linlithgow Palace Original Steel Engraved Print by Brown-Forrest -
WHY WE LOVE IT:, Original Narrative: Linlithgow Palace: The Palace of Linlithgow, which had been destroyed by fire in 1414,arose from its ashes with greater splendour than before; for the family of Stuart, unhappy in many respects, were all of them fortunate in their taste for the fine arts, and particularly for that of architecture. " James IV., as splendid as gallant, seems to have founded the most magnificent part of Linlithgow Palace; together with the noble entrance between two flanking towers ,bearing on rich entablatures the royal arms of Scotland, with the collar of the order of the Thistle, Garter, and St. Michael. " James V. was much attached to Linlithgow, and added to the Palace both the Chapel and Parliament Hall, the last of which is peculiarly striking. Mary was born there, in an apartment still shown; and the ill-fated father dying within a few days of that event ,left the ominous diadem which he wore to the still more unfortunate infant. " The situation of Linlithgow is eminently beautiful. It stands on a promontory of some elevation, which advances almost into the midst of the lake." DETAILS +
