James was the son of Mary, Queen of Scots and Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley. He was born at Edinbugh Castle.
On his journey to Scotland King James I visited Warkworth Castle. He found it in a state of disrepair and there were sheep and goats living within the rooms.
Charles became the first person to succeed to the crown of both England and Scotland. His father James was King of Scotland (James VI) from 1567 and later King of England (James I) from 1603. James was buried at Westminster Abbey.
