Queen Elizabeth did not have an heir when she died, thus, the Monarchy was somewhat interrupted. She died in 1603, and James I succeeded her. King James was crowned on July 25, in 1603, and had the Divine Right of Kings philosophy. The Parliament completely disagreed on this. They thought that the parliament was supposed to be in partnership with the King.

This caused turmoil in Scotland and England, although less in the latter. For England had Catholics, and Scotland had Presbyterians.
In 1604, they called for a Hampton-court conference and called for reforms. They made a bible known as the Authorized version of the bible for the Episcopal church, of which is known as the King James version today. King James developed arthritis, gout, kidney stones, and as he was an alcoholic, he died in 1625.
