Best Answer

King James I of England (or James VI of Scotland) reigned after Elizabeth I and continued the "Golden Age" of Elizabethan drama and literature. However, he was also known as "the wisest fool in Christendom." The people opposed his choice to unify the crowns of Scotland and England. After the unsuccessful Gunpowder Plot (intended to blow up the Parliament House), he dismissed Parliament because of disagreement, and his objection of the Great Contract (in which he would grant royal concessions in turn for money to pay off his debt due to his incompetent fiscal management). He then went on to enforce Catholicism, but let loose after a while and published the King James Version of The Bible.

For all of his neglection of business in preference for leisure, and court corruption, his death was widely mourned, as his people had enjoyed relative peace and low taxation in the Jacobean Era.

What two kings did William shakespeare write for?

Shakespeare did not write for any kings. He wrote for his theatre company, which after 1603 was sponsored by King James I, but this sponsorship was just like the sponsorship of a sports team--the sponsor had nothing to do with the day-to-day management of the company. And not only did he have no relationship with Queen Elizabeth, apart from occasionally performing in front of her, but she was obviously a queen and not a king
