Queen Mary Quitting Stirling Castle

In the quest to continually provide historic reference to ye olde worlde deerhounds or should that be ‘Hart-hounds’ as they were more commonly referred to in medieval times?

We located this little print which was produced July 11th 1863, depicting a view of the child James in his cot, being bid farewell by his mother Mary, Queen of Scots.

To find out more about the work of art and artist, visit the National Portrait Gallery here.

It’s interesting to note the large hound by the infant James’ cot, this being the reason we feature the painting. A view of costume dramatics ala 19th Century or a reflection of Scottish Royal life in the 14th Century?
