The King's Dominions outside the Realm

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines coverage of the English law outside the king's dominions during the Tudor period. Though English law was not confined to England, it did not run throughout the king's dominions, some of which were not subject to the common law or to the jurisdiction of the English courts. The dominions of the Tudor kings extended no further north than Berwick and no further west than Ireland. This chapter discusses the application of English law in Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man, and France.
