James VI and I (19 June 1566 – 27 March 1625) was King of Scotland as James VI from 24 July 1567 and King of England and Ireland as James I from the union of the English and Scottish crowns on 24 March 1603 until his death. 

James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy. The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England.

A very interesting movie to watch would be "God's Outlaw - William Tyndale. Here a direct link to the full movie on Youtube. It tells you about the origin of the first English bible translated by William Tyndale and what role King James played in ensuring that the KING JAMES BIBLE became available and its main purpose.
