Synopsis

The study examines the relationship between the sixteenth-century English nobility and the Tudor monarchy, as reflected by the career of Edward Stanley, third earl of Derby (1521-1572). The work demonstrates that the earl's relations with his tenants and local landowners could be just as important as his relations with the Crown. Derby's landed wealth put him among the top ten, if not top five, richest men in the kingdom, while his control over Lancashire and the surrounding areas in the northwest of England made him one of the most powerful subjects of the Tudor monarchs. An important goal of this study is to add to the growing list of detailed examinations of individual nobles and noble families during the sixteenth century in an effort to understand, first, the role of the nobility in Tudor society and, secondly, the policy, if any, which the Tudor monarchs followed in dealing with their most powerful subjects. On the whole, the role played by the upper nobility in sixteenth-century England depended as much on the circumstances and character of the individual noble as it did on the personality and policies of the individual monarchs.

While this study was written specifically to address those issues of primary interest to historians of the Tudor nobility, it also should appeal to scholars of early modern European society and politics as well as the numerous lay fans of the Tudor monarchy.
