    The Royal Collection contains Shakespeare-related items collected by generations of British monarchs, stretching back as far as Charles I, though principally concentrated in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Including paintings, rare books, prints, watercolours, furniture, decorative objects and photographs, these items tell a fascinating and overlapping set of stories about Shakespeare’s afterlife, the history of collecting, the histories of royalty and empire, and the histories of elite and popular culture. This conference brought together an international group of experts from fields including Shakespeare studies, history of art, collection studies, Romantic literature, and royal history. The papers given will shortly form the basis for an edited collection of essays, to be published in late 2022.
