British royalty of the Stuart line who reigned as James, King of Scotland 1685-88.
His childhood was clouded by a civil war from which he escaped to Holland in 1642. At the time of the Restoration in 1660, he returned to England and was a prominent figure throughout the reign of his brother, Charles II. He loved the sea.
James married Anne Hyde in 1660 and they had a son on 22 July 1663 NS who died before age four. James continued his pattern of many mistresses. His second wife was a girl of 16 in 1672. When he succeeded to the throne in 1685, he tried to bring Catholicism back to England, which led to his downfall and exile in 1688.
