Founded by King James VIII (Scotland) in 1687, it was reputed to have actually been instituted in 800 A.D. - in Scotland. Designed to incorporate selected Knights (Noblemen), into a protective and administrative role to a Monarch, The Order is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Thistle (a Scottish plant), is the predominate insignia of The Order and is set on either a Green or Gold field. The Order uses Knights and does not incorporate Women.
