Edmund Tilney in "We Haven't Got There Yet"Edit
In 1606, a new play performed at the Rose featured discussions of topics usually not considered suitable for theatrical performance, and had women as actors. William Shakespeare was in the audience, and wondered how these elements had escaped the notice of the Master of the Revels.
Tilney isn't named, but there is no reason to think that someone else was Master.
Edmund Tilney in Ruled BritanniaEdit
Despite the fact that he attained the office of Master of Revels under Queen Elizabeth, Edmund Tilney retained the office even after the Spanish Armada succeeded in conquering England. When William Shakespeare began writing Boudicca, he had to keep Tilney in the dark, by continuing to write the play King Philip.
Tilney was never the wiser, personally meeting with Shakespeare to compliment him on King Philip, which he found to be excellent.
The post-restoration fate of Tilney, unlike other collaborators, is not addressed.
