To what extent was james financial problems of his own making?

James 1st became king of England and Scotland on the 24th of July 1567. When he came into power Elizabeth the english monarch prior to him had left him a debt of £200’000 a lot of money in this time ,this however became worse after 3 years of james reign when the debt climbed to £700’000, this is down to various factors including, James extravagance, inflation and James large family.

The second issue with the nobles was that they undervalued their land, therefore they would have to pay less tax the king, this could suggest that the nobles were not to keen on James. An example of this would be land that was worth £48 during Elizabeth’s reign, during James reign was worth £12, combined with inflation really affected James finance.James however did not do anything about the fact that the nobles were limiting his income.
