James Charles Stuart (1566–1625) ruled as King of James VI of Scotland, and as James I, King of England and King of Ireland. He ascended the Scottish throne in 1567, when he was only one year old, succeeding his mother Mary Queen of Scots. On 24 March 1603, as James I, he succeeded Elizabeth I, who died without issue, as King of England and Ireland. He then ruled the three kingdoms for 22 years, often using the title King of Great Britain, until his death at the age of 58.

Under James, the "Golden Age" of Elizabethan literature and drama continued. His reign saw a new translation of the Bible into English, that affirmed the divine right of kings to rule.

James I in 1632Edit

James I was indirectly responsible for Balthazar Abrabanel and his daughter Rebecca becoming part of the Grantville community. Although his predecessor Elizabeth I had been tolerant of Jews in England, James enacted gradual restrictions until he began expelling the Jews in 1609. The Abrabanels were among those who left England.
