Born 1566. Died 1625 - King of Scotland and of England.
Son of Mary Queen of Scots. Became King of Scotland, James VI, in 1567 after motherís forced abdication. On death of Elizabeth I, 1603, he became James I of England. At first well received but his friendship with Spain, use of court favourites and resentment of his high-church stance led to strain between the Crown and Parliament. However widely recognised as one of the most successful kings of Scotland.
