Elizabeth's court had been the scene of intense personal rivalries for several decades and had recently been caught up in a factional dispute resulting in an abortive coup d'etat by the earl of Essex and his supporters. Relations between the crown and Parliament had begun to sour over monopolies and other issues, and relations between the central government and local governments were strained by the need for tax revenues to support the war.

Henry fought a long and bitter war against the French Catholic League. Elizabeth's government imprisoned and executed significant numbers of Roman Catholics and radical Protestants. James, on the other hand, worked patiently and resourcefully with only an occasional use of coercion.
