William Herbert, 3rd Earl of Pembroke (1580-1630), Lord Chamberlain

Sitter in 13 portraits
A courtier and important patron of art, Pembroke held office under both James I and Charles I. Both Ben Jonson and Inigo Jones benefited from his patronage, and with his brother Philip, he was one of 'the most Noble and Incomparable Pair of Brethren' to whom the First Folio of Shakespeare's plays was dedicated. Pembroke was appointed Lord Chamberlain in 1615, and Chancellor of Oxford University in 1617.
