Bonnie Prince Charlie's statue in Edinburgh City Chambers an inadvertent act of treason? – Scotsman comment

The latest news of  historical mistakes in Scotland comes from Edinburgh City Chambers where a bronze statue that was believed  to depict George III or even Charles I is actually now identified as ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie,’ an enemy of the Hanovarian kings. 

The statue was originally stored away for so long that its meaning was forgotten. The statue was then brought out of storage in 1810 and given a place at the City Chambers.
