James IV of Scotland Stories from Scotland's past. King James IV of Scotland was the last king to die on the battlefield in Britain. He was the last in a long line of rulers, particularly from Scotland, to meet their end in such a manner. James IV is generally regarded as the most successful of the Stewart monarchs of Scotland, but his reign ended in a disastrous defeat at the Battle of Flodden. James IV was married in 1503 to Margaret Tudor which linked the royal houses of Scotland and England. It led to the Union of the Crowns in 1603. James IV had a sad and ignominious end for he was one of Scotland's most charismatic warrior kings.
