This chapter is concerned with entertainments in the Elizabethan tiltyard and the opportunities such occasions provided for performers to take on chivalric personae that sent nuanced messages to the watching Queen. It begins with Sir Henry Lee's tiltyard speeches and the beginnings of the Accession Day tournaments, and continues by examining other tournaments and their surviving texts including the 1581 Callophisus entertainment involving the Earls of Arundel and Oxford, and the 1595 Love and Self‐Love entertainment of the Earl of Essex.

Keywords:   tournaments, tiltyard, Henry Lee, Earl of Essex, Accession Day, Callophisus, love and self‐love, Earl of Arundel
