Best Answer

A litter as used in Elizabethan times (and both before and after) is a form of unwheeled transport. It was used primarily to carry ladies of high rank and was similar to a sedan chair, but could be carried at shoulder height. There was enough room for the dresses the ladies wore and they sat or reclined in them as they were carried.
