This is very interesting. The article states that King James had suggested death as a punishment for failing the "water test." After doing some research on the water test I learned that those who were accused of witchcraft were dunked in water; if you sank you were innocent, if you floated you were a witch. King James claimed this was because water is one of the purest elements of the world, therefore it would repel an unclean soul. -Catherine Yetman

King James I had a traumatic injury when he was a child after falling off a horse and hitting his head on the ground. After a long recovery, he progressively overcame his head trauma, but unfortunately he couldn't participate in out door activities or physical sports any longer. His boredom drove him to take his studies extremely seriously, which is how he first started researching theories behind the existence of witches.
