This conclusion peers into the early days of 1614, including the birth of the first royal grandchild, Elizabeth’s first son, in early January, confirming the ‘German connection’ for the British royal family. The failure of the ‘Addled Parliament’ in 1614, gets discussed. Against good advice, King James summoned the parliament and spoke to it on three occasions, all to no avail. Infighting and intransigence doomed the legislative attempts. The narrative arc of 1613 plausibly ends with the Accession Day Tilt on 24 March 1614, a spectacular display in the Whitehall Tiltyard, led by the Duke of Lennox, a fitting end to the exploration of cultural life.
