The Last Word On James The First

, | Related | December 2, 2013

(I am approximately eight years old, and a big fan of a series of history comics and books. My parents have taken me to Hampton Court Palace for the day to encourage my historical fascination. Through the grounds, they have people acting through many different roles and answering questions.)

Me: “Who’s that?”

Steward Actor: “Why that’s King James I, lass! He was born in 1566, and united the English and Scottish crowns! He—”

Me: “I asked for his name, not his life story, mate!”

(If that actor is out there somewhere reading this, I really am sorry, but I am about to go study history at university!)
