Enter James I (Stuart) Contemporary Description of James His beard very thin: his tongue too large for his mouth, and made him drink very uncomely, as if eating his drink, which came out of the cup of each side of his mouth. his skin was as soft as taffeta sarsnet, which felt so, because he never washed his hands, only rubbed his finger ends slightly with
the wet end of a napkin. His legs very weak, having had (as was thought) some foul play in his youth, or rather before he was born, that he was not able to stand at seven years of age, this weakness made him ever leaning on other men's shoulders, his walk was ever circular, his fingers in that walk ever fiddling about his codpiece. He was very temperate in his exercises, and in his diet, and not intemperate in his drinking. Sir Anthony Weldon Who What When Where How Why James I (r.1603-1625) 1603 Elizabeth I died with no heir English crown went to James the IV of Scotland son of Mary (Queen of the Scotts) Stuart

Wrote book called The True Law of Free Monarchy Free meant free to rule as he pleased Rejected traditional power of Parliament Adopted the theory of the Divine right of kings King is responsible only to God Source: King James Address to Parliament, 1609 The state of monarchy is the supremest thing upon earth; for kings are not only God's lieutenants upon earth, and sit upon God's throne, but even by God himself are called gods. .. Kings are justly called gods, for that they exercise a manner or resemblance of divine power upon earth: for if you will consider the attributes to God, you shall see how they
agree in the person of a king. God hath power to create or destroy make or unmake at his pleasure, to give life or send death, to judge all and to be judged nor accountable to none; to raise low things and to make high things low at his pleasure, and to God are both souls and body due. And the like power have kings: they make and unmake their subjects, they have power of raising and casting down, of life and of death, judges over all their subjects and in all causes and yet accountable to none but God only. . . . James I As James IV of Scotland he was used to a weak Parliament Lectured Parliament on the royal rights There are no privileges and immunities which can stand against a divinely appointed King.
