Elizabeth died in 1603, making the period just before that Elizabethan.
James the First succeeded her, making the next period Jacobean.  To a
purist, the SCA 'period' stops at 1600, as it says (or used to say) in the
Corpora.  For many others, it goes till 1650.

Oops - I meant "very VERY late 1500's".
