James IV. (The Stewart Dynasty in Scotland). by. Norman Macdougall. The popular king of the Stewart dynasty who based his kingship on a broader geographic base than his ancestors and was seen by people all over his kingdom.

Like his ancestor James II, he should have been more familiar with the new technology that caught his fancy or used the Scottish landscape as one of his weapons like Robert I, rather than allow the English to cut his army off from Scotland on a battlefield with poor footing with the unfamiliar Swiss pikes that lead to a huge disaster that lef.

The Stewarts formed one of the most enduring and turbulent royal dynasties in Scottish history. Scotland had a new royal dynasty. In 1503 James IV married Margaret Tudor, daughter of King Henry VII of England. Through war, policy and marriage they dragged Scotland from the margins of European affairs to centre stage and, almost incredibly, they took the crown of the old enemy – England. Originating from Brittany, the family name had been Fitzalan. Successive Stewart monarchs tried to cement their grip on power – this involved taking on some of the most powerful clans in the country – the Douglases and MacDonalds.

Comments:

Innadril
This is NOT a book for the faint of heart. The scope and density of this work is impressive. In one paragraph, prof. MacDougal compares the actual accounting notes from two of James IV's castles and launches into a deductive reasoning about increased expenditures at a remote castle being not quite proof of a minor legend or myth but evidence thereof. To me this demonstrates; impressive research, original source research and most impressively an intellectual honesty to state the facts as he found them. I am a very casual reader of European history and grabbed this book on a whim. This is an excellent and meticulous analysis of one of Scotland's more important rulers. I enjoyed this book but it is a dense read. My only criticism was the style of footnotes but that is a minor choice based on style rather than substance.
