In the summer of 1642 Charles I and his governing entourage left Whitehall.
This conference investigates what happened next to one of the most important
institutions of his reign, the court. How did court life change? What did
the movement of the courts mean for government? Indeed, how useful is the
term 'court' after 1642?
