The Stone Of Scone

The Stone of Destiny, also known as the Stone of Scone, has been a significant object in Scotland for centuries. It was used to crown kings and queens and was believed to have been Jacob’s pillow from the Genesis story. The stone was also used to crown the High Kings of Ireland before being claimed by the English monarchy in 1296. It has been kept at Westminster Abbey for over 700 years and was recently returned to Scotland. However, the stone will soon be taken to England for the coronation of King Charles III. Some rumors suggest that the original stone may have been replaced with a fake, raising questions about its origins. For more information, please visit
