This chapter elaborates on the different aspects of the staging of the Stuart dynasty. James's royal entry and coronation were among the most magnificent of those of the early modern monarchs. The proclamation of James as king met with a national relief that was expressed in an outpouring of public attention and affection. The relation of his six-week progress from his Scottish to his English capital has far more than antiquarian interest; it suggests that England's new king had excellent skills in presenting himself to his subjects. James had made a real impression on his subjects and had acted with tact, grace, and charm. The warmth of his welcome, from all classes of society, left its mark on a king who was later to recall the numbers of people who had flocked joyfully to see him.
