Image source: Source says "Middle ages parliament".

Same image here, which says "The English Parliament Meets before Edward" by Anonymous, c.1327, this puts the King as Edward III who would have been about 15 at the time.

Same image, not in colour, is here:, which says image is Edward in front of parliament in 1295. This would have been Edward I, who would have been about 58.

According to J. Cannon and R. Griffiths, The Oxford Illustrated History of the British Monarchy (Oxford, 1988), p. 193, the image depicts Edward I presiding over parliament in c.1278. Edward is flanked by Alexander III of Scotland and Llywelyn the Last of Wales, although they probably did not attend any of Edward's parliaments. The closed crown indicates that this is not a contemporary illustration, and indeed it can be found in the Garter Book written and illustrated for Sir Thomas Wriothesley in c.1524. The lords spiritual are seated to the king's right, the lords temporal to his left, and in the centre sit the justices and law officers. No commons are present at this session.

Public domain

This work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.

Dialog-warning.svg You must also include a United States public domain tag to indicate why this work is in the public domain in the United States. Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Jamaica has 95 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term. Copyright may extend on works created by French who died for France in World War II (more information), Russians who served in the Eastern Front of World War II (known as the Great Patriotic War in Russia) and posthumously rehabilitated victims of Soviet repressions (more information).

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
