Week 21


In 1603, the long reign of Elizabeth I came to an end and a new king brought a new dynasty to the English throne. The moment was filled with excitement and the promise of progress in a new century with new freedoms in a more open atmosphere than the controlled society dominated by the grand old queen. The new king was James, King of Scotland, who is shown at the right in the excellent 1606 portrait by John de Critz now in the National Portrait Gallery in London.


At the right you will find Lecture Notes containing James I Biography and Seventeenth Century Chronology.
