Nobility and Newcomers

Shakespeare for Kids

Nobility and Newcomers in Renaissance Ireland is an exhibition about two countries, England and Ireland, at a very important time in history. Although the two places are not very far apart, both have their own ways of doing things. When the English king, King Henry VIII, became king of Ireland in 1541, he found that it was not always easy to rule Ireland the same way he ruled England. Many wars and rebellions occured after he died. Use the pictures below to choose which topics you would like to learn more about!
