The thistle in Aberdeen's King's College Chapel is one of the earliest
instances of its use as a royal emblem.

The grafitti, as you see, is from more than 200 years later.
Obviously, 18th cent. grafitti artists were as bad as today's.

King's woodwork is the only such surviving from Mediaeval Scotland.
