During the late 16th century, Catholics made several assassination attempts against Protestant rulers in Europe and in England, including plans to poison Elizabeth I. The Jesuit Juan de Mariana's 1598 On Kings and the Education of Kings explicitly justified the assassination of the French king Henri III – who had been stabbed to death by a Dominican friar in 1589 – and until the 1620s, some English Catholics believed that regicide was justifiable to remove tyrants from power.[13] Much of the "rather nervous"[14] James I's political writing was "concerned with the threat of Catholic assassination and refutation of the [Catholic] argument that 'faith did not need to be kept with heretics'".[15]
