    A much less reliable account of the origins of the KJV is provided by
    Richard Armour in It All Started with Columbus:

    The Pilgrims were a branch of the Puritans, and were proud of their
    family tree. They wore tall hats, which they had to take off when
    they went inside because they attended a low church. This displeased
    King James, who raised the roof. He demanded that they attend the
    same church as he did. At least this is his side of the story, which
    became known as the King James Version.
