R.I. and are to be sold by John Wright. 1650 1ed King James of England Court & Character Weldon Ireland anti Jacobean A fascinating 17th-century attack on King James I s character Anthony Weldon was a 17th-century English politician who is best known for his book The Court and Character of King James I . This book has long been famous for one specific line, that King James was the wisest fool in Christendom . Weldon had previously been banished from King James court after publishing negative evaluations of the King s rulership. First published in 1650, this work itself was contentious with Jacobean apologists. Weldon notably presented King James as a perverted, hypocritical, slobbering villain of whom he was exceedingly critical. (ODNB). Lowndes furthers the descriptions of this book, providing more exposure to the negative responses garnered by Weldon: a despicable issue of filth and obscenity, of falsehood and malignity.
