She began to assume a position in European politics, chiefly because of the opportunity which she afforded for furthering or checking the schemes against the insecure throne of Henry VII.

A proof of this position is found in the large correspondence which James held with nearly every power in Europe from Spain to the Baltic. This was the time too of Scotlands naval and commercial expansion.The long feud with England was ended by the peace of 1502, the first for over one hundred and seventy years- and Jame was wedded to Margaret Tudor in the following year, exactly a century before the accession of their great grandson to the English throne.

Yet ten years later, Scotland, through the treachery of one man and the folly of another, lost her king and almost all her nobility on English soil.The internal and social history of the reign transcends the political in interest and value. The period stands out in strong relief from the disorders of the preceding reign, and the anarchy of the next. Successful attempts were made to restore law and order- and the general national condition was improved in many ways.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
