Taymouth Hours
Sarum use.
The repeated representation of a queen, king, and child suggest that the Taymouth Hours was made for a royal patron.
Its style, which suggests a date between 1325 and 1330, coincides with the reign of Edward II, and the image of the young woman suggests that it may have been made for his daughter Joan who, still a child in 1328, was married to David II of Scotland.
Supporting this hypothesis is the Scottish provenance of the manuscript, which can be traced to the 16th century.
Some of the manuscript’s illumination shows the stylistic influence of the French master Jean Pucelle, and its many bas-de-page narratives, which range in subject from romance and fabliau to biblical and hagiographic material, are closely connected in subject and style to two other important manuscripts, Egerton MS. 2781 and the Smithfield Decretals (Royal MS 10.E.iv), both thought to have been illuminated in London.
Several images of a king, queen and young suggest a royal connection, and it has been suggested that the manuscript was commissioned for Joan, daughter of Edward II, who married David II of Scotland in 1328.
