The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle is an order of chivalry associated with Scotland. The current version of the Order was founded in 1687 by King James VII of Scotland (also known as James II of England) who asserted that he was reviving an earlier Order. The Order consists of the Sovereign and sixteen Knights and Ladies, as well as certain extra knights (members of the British Royal Family and foreign monarchs). The Sovereign alone grants membership of the Order- he or she is not advised by the Government, as occurs with most other Orders.
