King James I is perhaps best known in Perth for his dramatic murder, which occurred at the Black Friars Priory in February 1437, but his associations with the burgh were far more extensive than this unfortunate event and Perth’s central role as a site of royal power in the medieval era is often overlooked.

With 2024 marking the 600th anniversary of his coronation, which took place at Scone, this talk will see Dr Lucinda Dean, Senior Lecturer in History (Late Medieval and Early Modern Scotland and Europe) from the University of the Highlands and Islands, explore the relationship King James I had with Perth and the surrounding area during his reign, including the founding of the Carthusian priory which was designed as a royal mausoleum with his wife, Joan Beaufort.
