The Union of the Crowns followed the death of James's cousin, Elizabeth I of England, the last monarch of the Tudor dynasty.
The Union was a personal or dynastic union, with the Crown of Scotland remaining both distinct and separate - despite James's best efforts to create a new "imperial" throne of "Great Britain".
England and Scotland continued as autonomous states sharing a monarch with Ireland (with an interregnum in the 1650s during the republican unitary state of the Commonwealth and the Protectorate), until the Acts of Union of 1707 during the reign of the last Stuart monarch, Anne.
