1595-1606: New Perspectives on Regime Change

The death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603 marked not only the succession of James VI of Scotland to the English throne but also a change of dynasty from Tudor to Stuart. This conference explains how, in a world of weak bureaucracy that depended on the willingness of powerful people to govern, a change of dynasty influenced the governance of the realm.
