Can you tell me when, why, and by whom the King James translation was published?

Answer

King James I of England appointed a commission to revise the “Bishop’s Bible.” The first edition of this “Authorized Version” (also known as the “King James Bible”) appeared in 1611. For more details see the Catholic Encyclopedia article titled “Authorized Version” at catholic.com.
