The Coat of Arms of Charles I. The Coat of Arms above the entrance is that of Charles I who stayed in the King's Manor in 1633 and 1639. His father James I (James VI of Scotland) whose monogram appears on the doorway had introduced the unicorn the supporter of Scotland into the royal arms. The lion is the supporter of England. The two beast hold lances with the flags of St Andrew and St George. The fleur-de-lis of France and the harp of Ireland can also be seen. Note the N of the word MOИ. The coat of arms was restored by the York Civic Trust in 1972.
