Abstract

In this comprehensive collection of essays Simon Adams has brought to life the most enigmatic of Elizabethans - Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Adams, famous for the unique depth and breadth of his research, has collected here 16 of his most important essays which looks at the Elizabethan Court, and the adventures and legacy of the Earl. The essays give valuable insight on Queen Elizabeth and her court, Parliament, the localities from Wales to Warwickshire, the power of nobility, the politics of faction, and the role of patronage.
