James of Ireland (October 5, 1838 - November 17, 1922), sometimes styled as James I of Ireland or James III, was the last King of Ireland, taking the throne in 1859 following his cousin Patrick II's overthrow in a popular revolution until he abdicated the throne on November 1, 1874, three months after his only son and heir, John, died. The last surviving member of the McDean family that had been supported by the ‎French Empire, James was a reluctant monarch who eventually elected to retire to his rural estate instead of remain king, allowing the piecemeal nobility to debate whom would replace him. Following his abdication, James spent a decade in rural Ireland before moving to London, where he lived out the rest of his days.
