When King James I was a baby, his father was killed by James' mother, as James would later claim. James was therefore raised by regents. (TV: The Witchfinders)

Behind the scenes

In real life, James' father was Henry Stuart, Duke of Albany also known as Lord Darnley. He was portrayed by Timothy Dalton in the film Mary, Queen of Scots.
