James VI of Scotland is crowned King James I of England. This unifies the English and Scottish crowns, though both retain their own parliaments, laws, and sovereign status.

James I would like the unity to be expanded, arguing that it's natural for the people living on one island to be unified under a single set of laws and a single government, but people in both Scotland and England are opposed.

Later, King James I of England authorizes an English translation of the Bible which will become known as the "King James" or "Authorized" version of the Bible.
