Description:
James VI and I (James Stuart) (June 19, 1566 – March 27, 1625) was, from 1567, King of Scots and, from 1603, King of England, and King of Ireland, being the first Stuart monarch of the latter two countries.

The following article lists all the current descendants of James and his wife Anne of Denmark, through his son Charles I of England, and his daughter, Elizabeth of Bohemia.
