    It's a definite fake. Apart from all the other things wrong with it, which the Wiki entry discusses in detail, the ink used to draw it contains titanium dioxide, a chemical artificially

    manufactured in the 20th-century as a pigment, but not known in the Middle Ages and certainly not used then to make ink.
