Crown of Scotland The Crown of Scotland is part of the collection known as the Honours of Scotland. A beautiful specimen of early renaissance craftsmanship, it is the oldest crown in Britain. The sovereign is never crowned with it, nor is it ever worn, but it is officially handed over to the sovereign in a ceremony held in Edinburgh shortly after the coronation in London.
This crown belonged to Richard II’s first queen, Anne of Bohemia, and is a fine example of the ornate Bohemian style. After Henry IV’s accession it was given to his daughter Blanche, who brought it to Germany when she married the Elector Palatine Ludwig III; it now resides in the Residenz in Munich.
