WHO WAS THE RULER OF ENGLAND

DURING SHAKESPEARE'S TIME?

The two monarchs who ruled England


during the time of William Shakespeare
were Queen Elizabeth I and King James I.

King James ascended to the throne in 1603,


13 years before Shakespeare's death.

Queen Elizabeth allowed the construction of


England's first professional theaters during
her reign.

Shakespeare's
theater
company, once known as
Lord Chamberlain's Men,
acquired the patronage of
King James when he
became
the
reigning
monarch and changed its name to the King's
Men.
ELIZABETH AND JAMES I

Shakespeare lived during a remarkable


period of English history.
During her 45-year reign, London became a
cultural and commercial center where
learning and literature thrived.

Queen Elizabeth was fond of the theater,


and many of England's greatest
playwrights were active during her reign,
including Christopher Marlowe, Ben
Jonson, and William Shakespeare.
The Shakespearean sonnet, Spenserian
stanza, and dramatic blank verse also came
into practice during the period.

With the permission


of Queen Elizabeth,
professional theaters
were built in England
for the first time,
attracting
15,000
theatergoers
per
week in London.

Elizabeth

She was a tremendous fan of theater


and the literary arts; she
was
even
an
accomplished poet.
In turn, Shakespeare
faithfully supported the
queen and referred to
her in several of his
works, including "A
Midsummer Night's Dream".

HOW WAS SHAKESPEARE


INFLUENCED BY QUEEN
ELIZABETH?

Queen

Her insistence that women were


emotionally and intellectually equal to
men influenced his portrayal of women
characters as three-dimensional human
beings, a first in literature and theater at
that time.

critics attempted to have them banned

ruled from 1040 to
1057.

writings about the ideal king as one who
does his duty to God and country with
spotless integrity.

the supernatural and involvement in
witch trials while ruling in Scotland.
