  Lord Great Chamberlain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lord Great Chamberlain of England is the sixth of the Great Officers of State, ranking beneath the Lord Privy Seal and above the Lord High Constable.
The position is an hereditary one, held in gross, and was originally held by Robert Malet, a son of one of the leading companions of William the Conqueror.
The office of Lord Great Chamberlain is distinct from the non-hereditary office of Lord Chamberlain of the Household, a position in the monarch's household.

The lord steward and the lord chamberlain of the household are always peers, and have seldom been under the degree of earls.
The vice-chancellors used to follow the lords justices of appeal; but, in spite of the fact that there is still one vice-chancellor remaining, the office of vice-chancellor is extinct and will altogether disappear on his decease.

The official holding the ermine-trimmed Cap of Maintenance at the foot of the throne—on the Queen's right—should be William Paulet, 3rd Marquess of Winchester, for all authorities agree that this function was the hereditary right of the Marquesses of Winchester.
J. Round and other authorities on Elizabethan officialdom tell us that one of the distinctive duties of the Lord Great Chamberlain was "the disposition of the Sword of State." On such occasions as the assembling of Parliament, he bore this ancient symbol of defence before the monarch.
We have known for many years now that Lord Oxford was considered a poet and dramatist of exceptional merit by his contemporaries; also that he was the patron of various companies of players, some of whom were celebrated for their association with Shakespearean roles.

Some of the most magnificent homes in England were being built about this time and it must be conceded that masons and carpenters who could achieve such fine results in palaces, could equally apply their inventive genius, along with that of actors and managers, to the improvement of the stage.
It was a source of special grief to Lord Burghley that his son-in-law had no regard for the value of money and that he would leave his family destitute, though he had inherited one of the greatest fortunes in the realm.
Lord Burghley objected to “his lewd friends, who still, rule him by flatteries.” The word “lewd” did not then mean sinful or vicious, as it does today, but “lay” or “unlearned;” and we may suppose that the reference was to actors and playwrights, with whom he must have been closely associated.

 Order of Precedence in England and Wales
House of Lords Precedence Act (1539), which, although deciding only the seats to be occupied in Parliament, and keeping lay and clerics separate, nevertheless affirmed a non-papal source of precedence for ecclesiastics.
House of Lords Precedence Act 1539 and the Ordinance of 1595, both of which were to a large extent codifying current practice, form the canvass of the order of precedence.
In 1714 the Lord Great Chamberlain, who was a marquess, was made duke of Ancaster; but his precedence remained that of his creation except when in the actual execution of his office, lest he always precede the duke of Norfolk (Earl Marshal).

But Henry Carey was Lord Chamberlain of the Royal Household from June 1583, until his death in the summer of 1596, while his eldest son George filled the same office from April 1597, until December 1602, when his duties were taken over by Lord Thomas Howard, later Earl of Suffolk.
The Countess of Southampton would be one of the few persons in England most likely to know that the professional mask of the ranking Lord Chamberlain of the realm was "William Shakespeare." Hence her careful inclusion of this name in her ante-dated voucher to notify all interested parties that the account had been settled.
It should be abundantly apparent from the record here briefly given of the high mortality of Lords Chamberlain of the Household during the so-called heyday of Shakespearean stage enterprise, that the name under which the Bard's fellows carried on their operations is not subject to the narrow interpretation it has been accorded.

 Discovering Shakespeare
If, as Oxfordians maintain, the writer behind the Shakespeare pseudonym was Edward de Vere, as the 17th Earl of Oxford and Lord Great Chamberlain of England, he would have been constrained by more than ordinary apprehensions about publishing his poems and plays.
Indeed, that the "secret" was something of an open one, particularly in certain literary circles, seems confirmed by Oxford's receipt of a continuing stream of dedications and acclaim by his contemporaries, over many years—although, curiously, he is purported by most Traditionalists to have published nothing under his own name after 1576.
In any event, that the chief courtier poet-playwright of Elizabethan England, son-in-law of the Lord Treasurer and cousin to the Queen should have chosen the devices of anonymity and pseudonymity to assure himself freedom of expression in his repressive, suspicious and censorious culture should hardly be surprising.

 Case for Shakespeare
The Chamberlain’s Men had been taken into the new monarch’s service ten months earlier, and the nine actors named in the King’s license, including Shakespeare, are to be found in this account as the recipients of four and a half yards of red cloth.
Aside from the fact that the actors in what had been the Chamberlain’s Men had been in the King’s service for nearly ten months at the time, this hypothesis also ignores one account of James’s procession which makes it certain that the actors’ previous patron was unquestionably Lord Hunsdon.
At any rate, the manuscript of a play was the property not of the playwright but of the company that produced it; unless an unauthorized printer got hold of it first, a play could not be published without the consent of the shareholders.

For starters, the secret would have had to be generally known in the Lord Chamberlain'/ King's Men Company.

 SHAKESPEARE'S SONNETS - THE MONUMENT CHANGES THE PARADIGM - Author's Note on the Shakespeare Sonnets as a Monument
Most particularly I was drawn to the tortured lines of the Sonnets, which appeared to be the author's own version of Hamlet's soliloquies, using the personal pronoun "I" to express his deepest thoughts and feelings.
In particular, this alignment with the history also confirms the longstanding theory that the poet was Edward de Vere, Seventeenth Earl of Oxford (1550-1604), hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain of England and the most active patron of literature and the drama during the Elizabethan reign.
Based on the contents of the Sonnets, the only reasonable conclusion is that Edward de Vere was not only the Queen's lover in the early 1570s, as the Court gossip strongly suggested, but also that he fathered their unacknowledged royal son who was raised to become the Third Earl of Southampton.
