James VI, King of Scots, King of England and Ireland

"With the forced abdication of his mother, Mary Stuart, in 1567 James became King of Scots at the age of one. Another troubled period of regency government ensued..."

 

 

When James was only 13 months old he became King of Scotland. He was a Protestant king and was forced to despise his mother due to the fact that she was Roman Catholic. King James was kidnapped by William Ruthven, but escaped in 1583. Ruthven was killed and James was sent back to Scotland where he reigned. In 1603 James became King of England due to the fact that he was the closest relative to Queen Elizabeth I. Throughout the rest of King James’ reign he wasn’t that great of a King due to the fact that England had his mother killed.

Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, was a handsome noblemen who married Mary, Queen of Scots, on July 29th, 1565. On June 19th, 1566, Mary gave birth to her first son, James. Their marriage was going great, until Lord Darnley started to become jealous. David Rizzio was Marys private italian secretary. Darnley became jealous of Mary's and Rizzios friendship. One night Darnley and his friends rushed into Rizzios room and stabbed him to death in front of Rizzios pregnant wife. Darnley became a real problem for Mary and the Scottish Lords. In February, 1567, there was an explosion at Kirk O'Field. Lord Darnley's dead body was found in a garden nearby. It seemed that he was strangled after he ran outside to escape the fire. Lord Darnleys son was only a year old when he was killed. Suspisicion of Darnleys death fell on Lord Bothwell who married Mary a couple of months after her second husband was killed. Bothwell was one of Marys advisers, who wanted to be the King of Scotland. He was tried in court for Darnleys death, but walked away a free man due to his threatening soldiers.

The Life of King James I of England

The Life of King James I of England | King James of Scotland's Childhood 1A | Scoop.it

James I of England and VI of Scotland was born in 1566, the son of Mary, Queen of Scots, and Henry, Lord Darnley. James had to face difficulties from his earliest years—his mother was an incompetent ruler who quarrelled with politicians and churchmen such as John Knox, and she may have been involved in the murder of her husband Darnley, himself a worthless character. The murder was carried out partly to avenge the slaying of Mary's secretary and possible lover, David Rizzio or Riccio, in which Darnley played a part (before James's birth), and it also enabled Mary to marry her current lover, the Earl of Bothwell. Mary was deposed by the Scottish lords in 1567, and fled to England, where she sought the protective custody of Elizabeth I, who clapped her in prison and had her beheaded twenty years later.

The articles represent great evidence as to why King James was drawn to the desire of holding a powerful monarchy through his childhood injury, which prevented him from participating in normal events at that age
