The crucial question persisted, however, of who would succeed Elizabeth. In March of  1603, Elizabeth contracted a bad cold. Knowing she would not live long, the Queen  signed a document the day before she died making King James I of Scotland the rightful  heir, even though he was the son of her nemesis, Mary Queen of Scots: Elizabeth would  not sacrifice the well-being of the country for the sake of her personal grudges. Although  the Stuarts would rule in such a way as to create instability for England, Elizabeth's  action ensured a peaceful succession process. Her duty completed, Elizabeth died at  Richmond Palace in London on March 24, 1603.
