English Coat of Arms

Located at the east end of the Great Hall, closest to Great Britain, is the English coat of arms from the Tudor era. This was the coat of arms used by Elizabeth I during her reign, during which Shakespeare had his first great successes.

Below the coat of arms is a passage from a poem about Shakespeare by the eighteenth-century British theatrical legend David Garrick—actor, playwright, theater manager, and entrepeneur. To see the words that appear here, go to the Inscriptions page listed at left.
