Tudor Times Insights: James V, Scotland's Renaissance King £3.00
James V's life, although short, was action packed. King from the age of eighteen months, he weathered a difficult minority, as Scottish Lords around him vied for supremacy in a period when influence within Scotland was bitterly contested between France and England. Taking a firm grip on power at the age of sixteen, James soon showed he was a king to be reckoned with. Concerned with justice, as well as improving Crown authority, he still had time to travel to France and bring back new ideas of architecture, embodied in his beautiful palaces of Stirling and Falkland.
Tudor Times Insights are brief but comprehensive introductions to Tudor and Stewart personalities.
