More information about Final Jeopardy:

The Stone of Scone, or Stone of Destiny, was the stone upon which all future Scottish kings would be enthroned. It sat in Scone Palace atop Moot Hill.

According to Historic UK, one legend states that the Stone of Scone was originally the stone Jacob used as a pillow at Bethel, and then later became the pedestal of the ark in the Temple. Via Syria, Egypt, Spain, and Ireland, it was then brought to Scotland c. 840 by Kenneth MacAlpin.

It was then forcibly moved to England in 1296 after the victories of Edward I, and was only returned to the Scots on St. Andrews Day 700 years later.

  1. It looks like we end the week with a triple stumper.

  2. I believe the clue for the “Stone of Scone” final jeopardy answer was misleading. I had to search long and hard to find any reference to Kenneth McAlpin. Most accounts credited King Edward for brining the stone from the Holy Land. It was far too obscure as proven by all three contestants getting it wrong.
