Correction

A huge THANK YOU to Ashleigh in Toronto for pointing out a HUGE glaring error in the Guy Fawkes episode of British History 101. I stated that Elizabeth I was James I/VI's mother; in reality, and what I intended to say, was that she was his predecessor. I'll let Ashleigh explain for me here:

James Stuart was NOT the son of Elizabeth Tudor, the "Virgin Queen" who died unmarried and childless. James was the son of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (a cousin of Elizabeth), and her second husband Lord Darnley of England. When Elizabeth died in 1603 without an heir, the crown passed to James VI, who was one of her closest living relatives.

Again, thanks, Ashleigh!
