King of Scotland James II


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.

His son James, the Pretender, was born the year of his exile, 1688. James II died 16 September 1701 NS.
