As one can see he was pretty unstable for a twelve year back then to deal with a family death. In addition, another way James took his father 's death was by protecting his mother from the outside world. She was the white woman living in a black world and no one was comfortable with that fact. Because of his father’s death there was no one to protect her and he always stayed there watching her replacing his father 's position “ I thought black power would be the end of my mother. ”(McBride 26) because James clearly realized that black and whites never got along and his mom was in both, so it put her in danger.
In his youth, there seemed to have been an attempt for him to delve into literature, yet for the reading he was focused on varied from encyclopedia’s, philosophy, and historical events. However, these forms of literature that lacked the significant aspect of practical knowledge an adult would give. The modes of knowledge James obtained was intelligence rather wisdom. Yet throughout James’ life, he was constantly unable to delve in to any readings. Which is problematic given his father abandoned him, and his mother died when he was fifteen.

During the 16th and 17th centuries, absolutism was at the height of its popularity. Monarchs ruled over their countries with total authority. They claimed their spots on the throne by divine right and kept their power by limiting the nobilities’ influence. Spain was ruled by their own monarch, King Philip II.

Spain and England, the two main rivals in sixteenth century Europe, constantly fought with each other. When England defeated Spain in the Spanish Armada, the English empire became more powerful because of the lack of competition. The two nations had contrasting approaches to foreign policy; King Philip II of Spain incorporated religion as rationale in his foreign policy, while Elizabeth aimed to keep the Church separate. As a Catholic nation, Spain had become distrustful of England after Henry VIII’s divorce and excommunication; divorcing Catherine of Aragon (who was Spanish) cut off the marriage alliance between the two countries, and the King of England’s excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church strongly conflicted with Spain’s beliefs. Elizabeth’s religious policies did not help the situation either, as she not only supported a Protestant England, but also supported the Protestant rebellion against Spain in the Netherlands (Sommerville).
The absence of his biological father added to the yearn to know his roots, where he came from and who he was, as he became older. James struggled with identity for a great deal of his life after his stepfather, who seemed to be the emotional stability for the family, died. James was supposed to take care of the family after his stepfather died, but instead he dropped out of school, ran the streets, and picked up a bad habit of his stepfather’s- drinking. You would think that because James had good influences in his life that he would immediately take on that role after being taught, but James fell apart and had to learn to become a man on his own. Eventually, James found himself and began to transform into the man his fathers had taught him to

To many, monarchs were God 's form on earth. King James I of England said that "The state of monarchy is the supreme thing upon earth; for kings are not only God’s lieutenants on earth, and sit upon God’s throne, but even by God Himself they are called gods..." (Document 2). Like King James I, people believed monarchs were needed because they had power like God. Kings and Queens were essential and brought goodness to the land.
