Summary

Published over forty years ago, the original edition of Titled Elizabethans provided a ready reference source to Elizabethan court, state, and household. This long-awaited revised edition expands considerably upon the original, adding new categories and a host of previously overlooked figures, including the women of Elizabeth's privy chamber and the spouses of the peers. The section on church officers now includes deans as well as bishops, chaplains, and almoners, and new sections provide information on ambassadors and other sixteenth-century world rulers, placing the Elizabethan court in a broader geopolitical context. The book also features a name index containing over 2,000 individuals, cross-referenced from married names and alternate spellings. The product of rigorous and impressively thorough research, this is an indispensable resource for students and scholars across disciplines dealing with all aspects of the Elizabethan world.
