The king is the leading actor in an English court pageant (1603–25) of jousts, masques, brilliant weddings, and glittering receptions. Scholarship as vivid as fiction presents all major aspects of the court from its intrigues, organization, and finances to the topography of Whitehall Palace and the poisoning of Sir Thomas Overbury.
