In 1603, on the death of Elizabeth I (of England) King James VI of Scotland also became King James I of England. It was a personal union only - that is, England and Scotland had the same monarch but were still separate and independent countries. James I did soon call himself 'King of Great Britain' (for example on coins), but this referred to a geographical country only, not to a political entity. He also had the flags of England and Scotland combined for use by warships only, but the new flag wasn't popular, and there is some doubt as to whether it was used much. The political union - the establishment of the United Kingdom of Great Britain - dates from 1707.
Union of the Crowns 1603, Union of the Parliaments 1707
The Act of Union 1707 joined the crowns of Scotland and England (including Wales).
I presume you mean WHEN did Scotland and England unite! If so, the Union of the Crowns took place in 1603 and the Union of the Parliaments in 1707. A Scottish Parliament (within the UK) was recreated in 1999.
No, the Union of the Crowns was 1603. James V was King of Scots (note: "Scots" not "Scotland" ) in 1542.
Scotland didn't become recognisable under one ruler - it was recognisable in it's own right for a considerable period beofre this. However, the Union of the Crowns occurred on the death of Elizabeth I in England this is when James VI of Scotland also became James I of England. The Union of The Crowns occurred in 1603
Act of Union took place in 1707. Check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Act_of_Union_(1707) The Union of the Crowns, however, when James the 6th of Scotland also became James the 1st of England when Elizabeth the 1st died, was in March 1603.
No, Scotland was in union with England then.
Scotland and England created a union called Great Britain in 1707. England did not conquer Scotland.
He was already James VI of Scots when he took the crown of England and was the first monarch to rule the Kingdoms of Scotland and England (union of the crowns). He also authorised the King James version of the Bible.
To avoid confusion there are two important dates in this process:1603 when James VI of Scotland also became James I of England - this was the 'Union of Crowns', i.e. one person occupying both thrones.1707 Both the Kingdoms of Scotland and of England (and Ireland) were united to form a 'United Kingdom'.
It joined Scotland to England to form Great Britain.
Ironically, it was the death of Queen Elizabeth the First that brought about the union of England and Scotland; James I (of England, VI of Scotland) became king of both countries.
