Old Photograph Fore Entrance Linlithgow Palace Scotland

Old photograph of the Fore Entrance at Linlithgow Palace, Scotland. The entry gate to the palace displays the European chivalric orders which King James V belonged to: The Order of the Thistle, The Order of the Garter, The Order of St Michael, and The Order of the Golden Fleece of Burgundy. These were status symbols which signified James's membership of an European elite whose members followed certain codes of conduct in society and warfare.
