Short Note This is a short note

In Edinburgh, James V of Scotland is 'erected' king at the age of 12. By this ceremony, his minority is deemed to be over, dispensing with the need for a regent. This is a triumph for the pro-English party under the Queen Mother Margaret Tudor and the Earl of Arran.
