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.
