Noble Friends,

On this date in 1503, James IV, King of Scots, married Margaret Tudor. 
Margaret was the daughter of Henry VII of England, and sister of 
soon-to-be king Henry VIII. The marriage brought several years of uneasy 
peace between Scotland and England. All this ended when James invaded 
England to support the French in 1513 and got himself killed at the 
Battle of Flodden. Out of respect for his now-dowager sister, Henry VIII 
continued a generally peaceful policy toward Scotland until her death in 
1541. After that, all restraint ended.

It was this marriage that gave James the VI a clam on the English crown, 
and led to him assuming the English throne as James I in 1603.

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
