About the Author: David Lyndsay

Sir David Lyndsay of the Mount, (also spelled: Lindsay) (c. 1490 – c. 1555) was a Scottish officer of arms, poet (Makar) and dramatist, whose works reflect the spirit of the Renaissance.

He attended the University of St. Andrews and was subsequently engaged as a courtier in the Royal Household; first as an equerry, then as an usher (assistant to a head-tutor) to the future King James V of Scotland. His first heraldic appointment was as Snowdon Herald and in 1529 he was appointed Lord Lyon King of Arms, and knighted. After the death of James V, in 1542, he continued to sit in Parliament of Scotland as commissioner for Cupar, Fife; and in 1548 he was member of a mission to Denmark which obtained privileges for Scottish merchants.

Lyndsay's Ane Pleasant Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis is of great historical interest, being the only extant example of a complete Scottish morality play.

The Three Estaitis was first performed in the mid-sixteenth century to an audience of royalty and commoners alike. With its high style and penetrating political satire, it pressed for reform in Church and State and even in kingship itself with a hilarious masque of vice and corruption in high places.
