He was also patron of the acting troupe Lord Westmorland's Men, which ironically played a vital role in expelling the Spanish in 1598 when they performed William Shakespeare'sBoudicca. Isabella and Albert fled the country and Elizabeth returned to the English throne. Neville lost his positions and fled. The English Inquisition was disbanded under the Protestant Church of England. Patronage of Lord Westmorland's Men (which was subsequently known as The Queen's Men) was taken up by Elizabeth herself as a sign of her gratitude to the company and especially Shakespeare.
