When Shakespeare was born in 1564, Elizabeth I was on the throne. Queen Elizabeth I was an active and generous patron of the theatre, and had her own acting company called the ‘Queen’s Men’. She stood against the people who wished to close down the theatres and without her support the Elizabethan theatres would probably not have survived. In the 1590s, court performances by acting companies became popular and Shakespeare’s company was selected more than any other. In fact, During the last ten years of her reign, Shakespeare’s company of actors, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, performed at court thirty-two times, compared to thirty-seven performances by all other companies combined. It could be said then that Shakespeare was given “the royal treatment.”
