Do you spell the room as the "Jesters' Court" or the "Jester's Court"?

Do you spell it as Jesters' or Jester's?

I spell it as Jester's. I don't know why, it just looks right to me. I think the apostrophe is supposed to go between the r and s, not after the last s.

If Jesters' is the grammatically correct way of spelling it, then I might ask this topic to be closed.

I also spell it Jester's, for the same reasons as you stated.

Jesters'. Mainly because there are three paintings, supposedly of jesters, in the room; not just one.

I've always spelled it "Jester's", even though there's more than one "jester" in the wall painting.

I used to call it the Jester's Court, but because there are three jesters in the room, I began calling it the Jesters' Court, hence the name of the spam forum.

You know, I suppose "Jesters' Court" is the correct usage for that room. I always spell it as "Jester's Court: though. Its something I never really though about much.
