The accession of James I in 1603 established a new dynasty on the throne of England, following over a century of Tudor rule. This print was produced as a visual family tree to demonstrate James I's rightful claim to the throne via his great grandmother, Margaret Tudor, sister to Henry VIIII. It was first published by John Woutneel, a London printmaker in 1603.
