Item Information

Title:
A new mapp of England Scotland and Ireland
Title (alt.):
Collection of old maps
Description:
The Elizabethan Age was one that strived for regulation and obedience, but was marked by religious tension and political turmoil. Britain was ruled by Queen Elizabeth I from 1558 to 1603, with King James I succeeding her. This map illustrates late 17th-century Britain, some seventy years after Shakespeare's death, and indicates the numerous cities, towns and roads of the time. A royal family tree details each successor to the throne after William the Conqueror. In his history plays, Shakespeare dramatized the reigns of Kings John, Richard II and Henry VIII, and others who appear on this family tree.
