Sir Henry Sidney returning to Dublin Castle

Woodcut of 'Sir Henry Sidney returning to Dublin Castle from his campaign against the Irish'. Sidney was Lord Deputy from October 1565 to December 1571 and August 1575 to April 1578. In this image we see Sidney being greeted by the lord mayor and aldermen. In front ride trumpeters, yeomen, herald, and mace-bearer. Beside him is borne the sword of state. The caption at the bottom reads 'O Sydney worthy of renowne, For plagyng the traytours that troubled the crowne'.
