Who was King of England in 598AD?

There was no king of England in 598. There really wasn't even an England. There were several kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon settlers in parts of what is now England. The Celtic Britons still held on to part of it and they also had separate kingdoms. Although the Britons did refer to the Anlo-Saxons, collectively, as English, no one yet called their disparate kingdome England. That was still several centuries in the future.

Why did England want to explore and colonize?

Spain had demonstrated, through the exploration and colonization of Latin America, that such an enterprise was lucrative. As a result, the English wanted their share of the wealth, leading them to replicate the process. The English were helped in this by certain religious minorities that wanted to flee the direct control of the English sovereigns and, therefore, could seed these new colonies.While the Spanish were strongly motivated by the three "G"s, God, gold, and glory, only gold really motivated England. Converting the native peoples of the Americas to Christianity and achieving fame were not as important to the English as wealth was.
