When [Elizabeth] I died childless in 1603, her Scottish [cousin] James VI became [James] I of England. James was used to getting his own way in Scotland and did not get along with the English [Parliament]. He believed in the "Divine [Right] of Kings". This means that he believed that a king was appointed by [God] and had divine authority over his people. According to the "Divine Right of Kings", [nobody] had the right to argue with the King or limit his [power]. However, in England, King John had been forced to sign [Magna] Carta in 1215. This established the principle that the king could [not] make big decisions without [consulting] the people .
