The rule of the Stuarts began when King James VI of Scotland, the son of Mary (Queen of Scots), was crowned James I of England after the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603.
King James became famous for passing an act of parliament in 1611 to have the Latin Bible translated into English, and for granting permission to the Puritans to found a colony in Virginia, America.
