Fun Fact: Divine Right of Kings

Fun facts about king James

While he wasn’t the first monarch in the world to claim a super-natural right to the throne, King James I of England (also King James VI of Scotland) was the first English monarch to use the theory of the Divine Right of Kings. Claiming that as King he has to answer to nobody on Earth, and is given the right to rule by God. Coincidentally he also oversaw the English translation of scripture known as the King James Bible, which still features many supporters who strongly oppose any other English translation.
