From at least the fourteenth century, courtly entertainments drew on figures of classical deities to encounter, and honour, the court and monarch. Throughout the sixteenth century these gods are incorporated into various disguisings and plays: sometimes as figures of identity to magnify or represent the monarch, sometimes to offer advice or to invite a shared exercise of power. This paper explores the use of these figures in relation to the Tudor monarchs of the sixteenth century, reflecting on how such deities could be used to shape theatrical interactions with monarchy.
