English visitors to St. Peter's will remember Canova's neo-classic monument near the entrance to the basilica to the memory of the last Stuarts—James III, and his two sons, the second of whom was a Cardinal in Rome for many years.
Visitors will also recall how poor in comparison was the plaster monument which covered the coffins of these three Stuarts in the crypt where Pius X, Benedict XV and Cardinal Merry del Val are also buried.
Crown and Sceptre
The condition of the Stuarts' tomb has recently been enhanced by a covering of marble, surmounted by the royal emblems of the sceptre and crown, and bearing the inscription which Canova carved on his marble monument in the basilica.
