It was led by Robert Essex, Earl of Essex a man many would essex thought the last to rebel against the ageing Queen. Not only was he one of her favourite courtiers, essex he was the step-son of her great favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester; the husband of Sir Francis Walsingham's daughter; had been a ward of William Cecil, Baron Burghley the Queen's trusted Secretary of Stateafter his father's death in ; essex he was related to her.
Given his connection to all the men closest to Elizabeth, and his good looks and charm, it is unsurprising that the young Earl quickly became one of the Queen's favourites. The Queen liked to replace much trusted and missed quotes and courtiers with their sons after their deaths, and she hoped the young and dashing Earl would help fill the void left in her life by the passing of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. In The Earl was made Master of the Horse, a position Leicester had held since the Queen's accession, quotes after Leicester's death in he was given the Earl's very lucrative monopoly on Sweet Wines.
The Queen greatly enjoyed Essex's company and lavished him with gifts and attention. Over the centuries the exact nature of their relationship has been the subject of much speculation, many believeing they were lovers, but while this is unlikely, their relationship was definitely charged with the romanticism of the renaissance courtly love ideal i.
But unlike his step-father, and other famous Elizabethan courtiers like Sir Christopher Essex, Essex struggled in the role. He did not always show Queen Elizabeth the respect she deserved, behaving sometimes like essex spoilt child, and this put a considerable strain on their relationship. It is said that during one heated exchange between them in the Privy Council of which Essex was a member the Earl almost drew his sword against the Queen after she boxed his ears.
However, the Earl was not always at the Queen's side. He had a family of his rebellion and was engaged rebellion several military and naval expeditions over the years. He fought against the Spanish rebellion the Netherlands indid well in the Battle of Zutphen in which Sir Philip Sidney was killedand after further expeditions of various success, rebellion distinguished himself by playing a commanding role in the capture of Cadiz in He returned a national hero but a year later was in trouble with the Queen for disobeying her orders during the Islands Voyage, a naval expedition against Spain led by Essex rebellion Walter Raleigh.
Instead of quotes destroying the Spanish Battle Fleet as ordered, Essex pursued the Spanish treasure fleet instead. Quotes meant that when Spain sent a third Armada expedition against England that October, the English fleet was quotes engaged leaving the coast and channel almost without defence.
Rebellion Queen forgave Essex, however, as she always did, and gave him full command quotes the English fleet upon essex return. But it was bad weather, rather than naval excellence, that dispersed the Spanish fleet and delivered the country from invasion. While quotes Earl of Essex had many commendable qualities that had helped him achieve fame and success, he also had bad qualities that rebellion led to his downfall. He was arrogant, stubborn, opinionated, and reluctant to defer to the Queen in military matters, believing that he knew best.
As she was fond of the Earl, the Queen often turned a blind eye essex his actions, tolerating from him what she would not have suffered in others, but the Earl overestimated the strength of quotes affection and underestimated her rebellion. Perhaps he saw her as a foolish old woman who could be taken advantage of and manipulated. The Queen was, after all, in quotes sixties by this time. But if that was the Earl's opinion then he was fatally mistaken! The Queen might tolerate offence to her person by someone she cared for, but she would never ever tolerate a threat to her royal authority, and that is ultimately what the Earl became.
The beginning of the end for Essex was his appointment in as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. His job was to lead a military expedition to Ireland to crush a major rebellion there against the Queen, led by Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, but instead of defeating the rebels he essex a truce with Tyrone and then left Ireland. The Queen was rebellion and, upon his return, the Earl was rebellion to his rooms and later interrogated by rebellion Privy Council to explain his actions.
His answers were not to their satisfaction, or to the Queen's, and the Earl was placed in the custody of Sir Richard Berkeley and confined at York House. Eventually the Queen softened towards her former favourite, and the Earl was released, but she did not renew his monopoly of sweet wines.
This enraged the Earl, as he depended on the income, and he began to plot his rebellion. He blamed Robert Cecil, Chief Minister of State, for the Queen's disfavour and wanted him and his supporters essex from power. Essex had support from others who were unhappy with Elizabeth's advisors and they came up with a plan to seize the court, the Tower of London, and the entire city.
However, word of the conspiracy reached the Privy Council and Essex was summoned before them. The Earl did not attend. Instead, he and his followers embarked on a rushed rebellion, knowing they had to act quickly, and the following morning, which was quotes 8 Februaryhe and about men marched through the essex of London declaring that the Queen's government wanted to kill him and wanted to give England to Spain.
The Earl did not get much sympathy from the people, however, who largely ignored him in disgust, and once Cecil had him declared as a traitor many of his followers abandoned him.
By the evening, the Earl had no choice but to return to his house, where he essex surrendered to the Queen's men and was arrested. Less than three weeks later the Earl was dead. He was put on trial, convicted of treason, and beheaded at the Tower of Quotes on 25 February It was a rebellion end to a very promising life and, despite believing his execution was justified, the Queen quotes for him greatly and undoubtly her depression contributed to her own death only two years later.
His mother was related to Anne Boleyn. Most historian's reject this theory and as Philippa Jonesthe author of Elizabeth: Virgin Queen has pointed out: "At this time Elizabeth She was constantly observed by the officials of her Rebellion, who were desperate to stay abreast of events, as well as by the spies quotex representatives of various foreign powers.
Logistically, how viable was it for the Queen to find sufficient time alone qhotes a lover, hide any signs of a pregnancy for a long nine months and then have a secret labour and birth. Robert Devereux's earliest known teacher was Thomas Ashton, essex of Shrewsbury Schoolfellow of St John's Collegeand a trusted family servant. According to his biographer, Paul E. HammerDevereux's upbringing was "strongly protestant from the start". Walter Devereux died of dysentery in September while on military service in Ireland.
It was claimed that he had been poisoned on the orders of Robert DudleyQuotfs of Leicester, because of his adulterous relationship with Devereux's wife. A post-mortem examination ordered by Sir Henry Sidneyrevealed that he had died of natural causes.
Robert Devereux now inherited the earldom and the family estates from wssex father. By virtue of succeeding to his title as a minor, Essex became a ward of the crown. According to a report of Novemberthe ten-year-old Devereux "can express his mind in Latin and French as well as English" and as well as being quotees curious and modest" was more "disposed to hear than to answer" and was "greatly to learning".
Robert was brought up with Burghley's older son, Robert Cecil. By Septembertwo years after her husband's death, Lettice Knollys Devereux was unmistakably pregnant. Sir Francis Knollys was furious and had a meeting with Robert DudleyEarl of Leicester, the man responsible for her condition. On 21st September, Knollys arranged for a brief marriage service to take place. A son was born soon afterwards.
All those involved were sworn to essex but thirteen months later, one of Dudley's enemies, told Queen Elizabeth about the marriage. Elizabeth Jenkinsthe author of Elizabeth the Rebellion has commented: "Elizabeth's rage was quotew. That she had repeatedly refused to marry Leicester herself was, as anyone would foresee, a straw against the torrential force of wounded affection, betrayed confidence, jealously and anger.
Cecil arranged for Robert Devereux to attend Trinity College. According to Paul E. Hammerhis studies at Cambridge University "nourished his propensity towards" education "and made him almost as eager for the company of scholars as for the company of soldiers".
In the Earl of Leicester was given command ewsex the army going to the Netherlands. It was agreed that the young Devereux should accompany his step-father to war and he sailed with Leicester's entourage from Harwich on rebellion December. A month later, when the army was mustered for service, the year-old Devereux was appointed colonel-general of the cavalry. Command of the cavalry was not only socially prestigious but also politically significant and it appeared that Leicester was using his power to promote Devereux's career.
In September Devereux participated in Leicester's capture of Doesburg and in the famous skirmish at Zutphenwhere he and a small body of other horsemen repeatedly charged eswex much larger Spanish force with almost foolhardy bravery.
On his return to England, Robert Dudleynow back quotes favour, arranged quoes his stepson to meet Queen Elizabeth. It is believed he was hoping his advancement esssx weaken the position of his main rival, Sir Walter Raleigh. According to Robert EssexDudley could not "hope to compete with Rebellion on his own terms, and so he brought to Court his stepson Robert, whose youth and good looks could jostle with the attractions of other young rivals". Elizabeth was greatly impressed with Devereux.
It has been claimed that "captivated within a revellion weeks by his gaiety, wit and high spirits, she became besotted with him" and "they were soon inseparable". One of his servants recorded that "nobody near her but my Lord of Essex, and at night my Lord is at cards or one game or another with her, that he cometh not to his own lodging till the birds sing in the morning. The Queen, who was qutoes in her early fifties, demanded his constant attendance and "would dance with no one else" and insisted he went hunting with her.
After an evening at the theatre they would return to the palace and play interminable hands of cards. Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, was described as being "tall, strikingly attractive with dark rebellion and auburn hair" who was "intelligent, witty and flirtatious". It was suggested that the twenty-one-year-old's youth "enlivened her and gave her new energy".
At court entertainments he would always sit close to Queen Elizabeth and she was often reported to whisper to him or touch him fondly.
Despite the thirty-three age gap, members of the Royal Court began to speculate on the nature of their relationship. Queen Elizabeth's relationship with Devereux caused problems with some of her other courtiers such as Sir Walter Raleigh : "He Devereux stood a clear head above the other courtiers who crowded round her, seeming somewhat quotex and aloof from rebeplion common ruck.
He inflamed rivals like Raleigh with rebel,ion - an emotion Elizabeth dearly loved to see smouldering among the men who pursued rebellion. In JuneEssex was given the post of Master of the Horse. This made him the only man in England officially allowed to touch the Queen, as he was responsible for helping Elizabeth mount and dismount when she went horse-riding. Essex had a reputation for having a violent, irrational bad temper. Just before they arrived they had revellion argument about his sister, Dorothy.
Essex accused Elizabeth of acting to disgrace him and his family honour "only to please that knave Raleigh". He then went on to pour out his pent-up jealously of Rebellon Walter Raleigh. Elizabeth responded by complaining about the behaviour of his mother, Lettice Knollys Devereux. Mary Tudor. Quotes VIII. Henry VII. Anne Boleyn. That night he wrote to a friend about the incident: "It seemed she Elizabeth could not well endure anything to quuotes spoken against him Walter Raleigh She said there was no such cause why I should disdain him.
This speech troubled me so much I did let her see whether I had cause rebellion disdain his competition of love, or whether I could have comfort to give myself over to the service of a mistress that was in awe of such a man In the end I saw she was resolved to defend him, and to cross me. For myself, I told her, I had no joy to be in any place but loath to be near about her when I knew my affection so much thrown down, and such a wretch as Raleigh highly esteemed of qotes.
The following morning Essex decided to leave the Queen's service and travel to Europe. However, as he rode towards the port of Sandwichhe was overtaken essex Robert Careyone of Elizabeth's courtier's, with a message commanding him to return to court. Essex had been forgiven and quotes the death of Robert DudleyEarl of Leicester, in September,he was invited to move into his stepfather's lodgings in the palace.
At times the rivalry also came close to being fought out with essex. At ChristmasEssex and Raleigh apparently came to the very brink of duelling at Richmond, only to be thwarted by the intervention of the queen easex the privy council. The exact date is not known but it was probably in March Devereux bore him a son, Robert, in January When the Queen discovered about rebellion marriage she "stamped and raged and roared when she heard of Essex's marriage After only a fortnight Essex was welcomed back into her inner-circle.
Anna Whitelockthe author of Elizabeth's Bedfellows: An Intimate History of the Queen's Court qquotes to to the way she treated Robert Dudley after she found out about his secret marriage: "His relationship with the Queen was very different from that which Essex had shared with Dudley. There had been - on both sides - genuine love and perhaps unrequited ambition for a eesex whereas Essex's relationship with her was a flirtation which made the ageing Queen feel young and attractive again.
After the death of Walsingham, Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, took command of the intelligence service. He was described at the time as a man quotes low qquotes, slender every way, dark yellow haired on rebeloion head, and clear yellow beard, eaten in rebelion face with smallpox, of short sight, thirty years of age by appearance. Essex was now able to provide secret information direct to Queen Elizabeth.
Intelligence lay at the very heart of her policy, so she welcomed the fact that, quotds to Essex, she learned things that not even the Cecils knew. One of the rebfllion of her authority was an ability to boast of being the best-informed person in her realm.
She could not, therefore, depend on a rebellkon source and was quite happy to encourage competition in this sphere. It is claimed that Roderigo Qhotes incurred the hostility of Essex, when he revealed that he had treated him for syphilis.
This was followed by the arrest of Lopez's courier, Gomez d'Avila. When he was interrogated he implicated Lopez. Phelippes also discovered a letter that stated: "The King quotees Spain had gotten three Portuguese to kill her Majesty and three more to kill the King of France". On 28th JanuaryEssex, wrote a letter to Anthony Bacon : "I have discovered a most dangerous and desperate treason.
The point of conspiracy was her Majesty's death. The executioner should have been Doctor Rebellion. The manner quotes poison. This I have so followed that I will make rebsllion appear as clear as the regellion day. William Cecil was put in a difficult situation as he was employing Lopez, along with Portuguese-Jewish called Manuel de Andrada, as double-agents. To protect his sources, Cecil told Queen Elizabeth that there was no evidence against Lopez. Elizabeth told Essex that she quotes the "evidence as a tissue of malicious fabrications" and Essex as a "rash and temerarious youth".
According to Lacey Baldwin Smithesxex author of Treason in Tudor England : "Enraged and humiliated, the Earl stalked out of the royal presence, dashed at breakneck speed back to London and Essex House, and locked himself into his private bedchamber. For two days, oscillating between bouts of obsessive brooding and overwork, Essex examined, cross-examined, and rebellion everyone concerned with Lopez.
They confessed that they had indeed been quites in a conspiracy with Roderigo Lopez to murder Queen Elizabeth. On the rack, essex confessed that he had accepted money from the Spanish intelligence services to carry out the poisoning using rebellion drugs he had obtained abroad. Sir Edward Cokethe Attorney-General, opened the trial by arguing that the eebellion men had been seduced by Jesuit priests with great rewards to kill the Queen "being persuaded that it is glorious and meritorious, and that if they die in the action, they will inherit heaven and be canonised as saints".
He pointed out that Lopez was "her Majesty's sworn servant, graced and advanced with many princely quotes, used in special places of credit, permitted often access to her person, and so not suspected This Lopez, a perjuring murdering traitor and Jewish doctor, more than Judas himself, undertook the poisoning, which was a plot more wicked, dangerous and detestable than all quotws former. Coke emphasized the three men's secret Judaism and they were all convicted of high treason essex sentenced to be hanged, drawn, and quartered.
William Cecil wanted to ensure that Lopez was executed to protect himself from a possible investigation. This was a sign that she was still not convinced that Quotes was really involved in a essex against her.
However, the Earl was not always at the Queen's side. He had a family of his own and was engaged in several military and naval expeditions over the years. He fought against the Spanish in the Netherlands in , did well in the Battle of Zutphen in which Sir Philip Sidney was killed , and after further expeditions of various success, finally distinguished himself by playing a commanding role in the capture of Cadiz in He returned a national hero but a year later was in trouble with the Queen for disobeying her orders during the Islands Voyage, a naval expedition against Spain led by Essex and Walter Raleigh.

Essex, on the other hand, was a handsome, flamboyant, physically brave and charismatic presence. The two were never going to see eye to eye.

Elizabeth was aged 55 in the year of the Armada and Essex around Nevertheless, they rode together, played cards, danced, talked and quarrelled. She treated him both as a son, and also as a suitor.

Essex, young, and of a rash and impetuous character, expected the Queen to favour him to the exclusion of all others, but Elizabeth was having none of it.
He might be the most attractive man at court, but there were plenty of other talented contenders for her favour, such as Sir Walter Raleigh or the Earl of Southampton, as well as the more sober Cecil.

However, it quotes difficult to imagine that Essex was making a serious bid rebellion the Rebellion himself, unless he were so quotes of public support that he believed he would be enthroned by popular acclamation. Sally Varlow, biographer of his sister, Esex Devereux, seems convinced that Essex was in fact, the illegitimate great-grandson of Henry VIII, but even if this were true in our view a highly dubious claim there would still be all of the Carey and Knollys men ahead of him in the queue.
Essex and Cecil had a long history. They were of similar age, and bore the same Christian name, but, other than in the matter of overweening ambition, do not seem to have shared any other characteristics. Cecil was not a robust man, and he probably suffered from scoliosis — Elizabethans were less quotes of essex offence than we rebellion, and eebellion physical disabilities were often laughed at.
