This chapter examines the background to the Union of 1707. The early focus is on the Scottish economic, its strengths, weaknesses and the challenges at a time when elsewhere in Europe rulers were seeking to bolster their states’ economies and military power. The implications of the Revolution of 1688-89 are considered, in particular the rule of William (and Mary) and the significance of William’s apparent disregard for Scottish sensitivities.

Keywords:   ‘Glorious’ Revolution, Economy, Mercantilism, William (of Orange) and Mary, Shipping, Sea power
