Another royal murder mystery….!

King James I of Scotland

Well, it has to be said that Leicester has benefited immensely from the discovery and burial of Richard III, and his supposed “murder” of the boys in the Tower. Of which he was NOT guilty.

Anyway, maybe Perth can benefit too, because it has its own royal mystery. James I of Scotland died a very bloody, grubby death, his body being found with 28 knife wounds in a stinking tunnel. In 1437, he too was buried in a house of God, which was subsequently destroyed. Is he, like Richard, still waiting to be discovered?

If he’s found and reburied, I hope Perth will reap some reward. Maybe too, the truth of how he died, and who killed him, will be discovered as well.

  1. There was never any mystery about who murdered King James, considering that his wife and queen, Queen Joan, was a witness who survived the attack. Robert Stewart, the king’s chamberlain, was the main conspirator aided by Robert Graham and a number of other co-conspirators.
