At the heart of the problem was James himself. A foreigner who never seems to have understood the English constitution, he was never able to use it to best advantage. 24 Norman Jones References and Further Reading Brenner, Robert (1993).

When the Spanish fleet was finally sighted by Admiral Howard’s scouts, a running battle began. The smaller, faster, better-armed English ships harried the Spanish, preventing them from linking with Parma’s army and forcing them to run for the North Sea. Somewhere near the Firth of Forth English pursuit stopped and divine wrath took over. Battered by storms, the Armada retreated toward Spain around Ireland, losing ship after weakened ship. Meanwhile, Elizabeth was faced with a truly frightening situation.

As far as James was concerned, when he became king of England, England and Scotland became one nation. Somehow he forgot that their institutions, customs, and self-interests could not easily blend. In 1604 England’s Parliament quickly made it clear to him that his actions were to be constrained by England’s established legal tradition. The House of Commons produced a document known as the Apology of the Commons, designed to teach their king to respect Parliament’s privileges. It was never delivered, but they refused to grant him the title of king of Great Britain.
