Abstract:

To be King of Scots was never the passport to peace or joy, and for young James the Fifth the throne made an uncomfortable seat indeed. As a boy he had been deliberately corrupted by his step-father, the Red Douglas, Earl of Angus, so that he might get both King and Kingdom in his power. Even when James escaped from Angus' clutches he still had that most rebellious and powerful house to cope with. Not to mention the Hamiltons, whose chief,the Earl of Arran was next in line to the Crown. Add to this, James himself was impetuous, hot-bloodied, handsome, with no great interest in matters of state, but an enormous interest in women. While to the south, his Uncle Henry the Eighth of England watched every move north of the border, poised to invade. The royal advisers, David Beaton now Lord Privy Seal, soon to be Cardinal; and the poet David Lindsay, Lord Lyon King of Arms, faced a mighty task.
