This chapter provides a historical background of Lord Strange’s Men. Family tradition was fundamental to the creation and patronage of Lord Strange’s Men. From the standpoint of the company’s patron, Ferdinando Stanley, a key motive for his backing of players lay in a tradition of patronage developed through previous generations of the family. The chapter discusses the family’s interest in theatrical patronage and what motivated Ferdinando Stanley, Lord Strange, to launch his career as patron of his own troupe.
