The Scots Magazine - - Wild About Scotland -

A Royal stag has 12 points or tines on its antlers, an Im­pe­rial has 14, while a Monarch has 16.

Stag, or adult male deer, is “cerf” in French, “ciervo” in Span­ish, “hjort” in Nor­we­gian and “hirsch” in Ger­man.

A stag with no antlers is called a “hum­mel”. One with antlers, but with no tines, is called a “switch”.
