306) James V of Scotland

James V (1513 – 1542). King of Scotland. Father of Mary Stewart and husband of Mary of Guise and of Madeleine of Valois. Son of Margaret Tudor and James IV.

- “James V had grown into a handsome and charismatic young man with auburn hair, heavy lidded eyes, which were an inheritance from his Tudor mother and strong aquiline features.

- "James's face was oval, his quick eyes a bluish grey, his nose aquiline, his hair red, his mouth small, his chin weak for a man, his figure good, his height about the middle size."
