Admiral's Men

a theatrical company in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. About 1576-79 they were known as Lord Howard's Men, so called after their patron Charles Howard, 1st earl of Nottingham, 2nd Baron Howard of Effingham. In 1585, when Lord Howard became England's lord high admiral, the company changed its designation to the Admiral's Men. It was later known successively as Nottingham's Men, Prince Henry's Men, and the Elector Palatinate's (Palsgrave's) Men.
