This chapter explores the pre-history of the Union of 1707. It looks at the Scots’ attitudes to England over the course of the seventeenth century and why there was so much dissatisfaction with the Union of the Crowns of 1603, when James VI of Scotland became monarch of the three kingdoms, governing from London.
