South Window, Parliament Hall
The great south window celebrates the founding of the Court of Session in 1532. King James V is presenting the Charter of Institution and Confirmation by the Pope to Alexander Mylne, Abbot of Cambuskenneth and first Lord President of the Court. Archbishop Gavin Dunbar of Glasgow is raising his hand in blessing, and the King's mother Queen Margaret, widow of King James IV, is seated on the King's right - at top left of the picture. The window covers 390 square feet (3.9 square metres) and consists of 8000 pieces of glass. It was designed by Wilhelm von Kaulbach and built by Maximilian Ainmiller of Munich in 1886-8.
