Elizabeth I’s Royal Tours

Not Just the Tudors


Elizabeth I’s Royal Tours

Every spring and summer of her 44 year reign, Queen Elizabeth I insisted that her court go “on progress” — royal visits to towns and aristocratic homes. These trips provided the only direct contact most people had with their monarch.

In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb meets Dr. Mary Hill Cole, whose research examines the effects of these visits on the Queen’s household and government, the individual and civic hosts, and the impact of her authority. 

This episode was edited by Joseph Knight and produced by Rob Weinberg.
