Context

Elizabeth I and James VI form a league of friendship by the Treaty of Berwick. This sets them in opposition to the joint Catholic force of James' mother, Mary Queen of Scots, and Philip II of Spain, whom Mary has recently announced as her heir. The treaty also gives James financial support, promising him an annual pension from England.
