Room 4
Early Stuart Britain

Room 4This room focusses on the Stuart family who reigned in England for over a century after James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1603. This period brought great achievements but also unprecedented civil strife. James's queen, Anne of Denmark, and his elder son Henry, Prince of Wales, dominated cultural life at the Jacobean court. Also on display are notable literary figures from this period, including Ben Jonson and John Fletcher.
