An absorbing and illuminating account of the relationship between Robert Dudley and Queen Elizabeth I-a dramatic romance that has inspired countless films. Leicester's influence on the Queen was constant and incalculable, though he was reviled by his fellow courtiers, detested by the populace, and lampooned by writers. His character; lavish entertaining; encouragement of the arts; and day-to-day activities as he rose from courtier to leader of the English forces all come vividly to life.
