[pedant]Technically, the Union of England and Scotland didn't happen until 1603 when Liz the First popped her clogs so Jim (who died in 1513) was a Scottish king, not a British one.[/pedant]
Edit - It turns out technically Great Britain didn't exist until 1707, I have outpedanted myself
You're talking cobblers, so the Scots aren't Britons? I think you'll find my statement is correct.
Did you know also that although Henry VIII's forces defeated James IV at the battle of Flodden and poor James died (very nastily), it was James IV's genes that won in the end...James IV is an ancestor of Elizabeth II whereas Henry VIII is not?
