Death and the Virgin: Elizabeth, Dudley and the Mysterious Fate of Amy Robsart | [Chris Skidmore]

Death and the Virgin: Elizabeth, Dudley and the Mysterious Fate of Amy Robsart

On 9th September 1560 Amy Robsart, the wife of Queen Elizabeth’s favourite courtier, Robert Dudley, was found lying dead at the foot of a staircase. It was a death that scandalised Tudor England. Was it an accident, suicide or murder? Robert Dudley’s open flirtation with the young Queen Elizabeth only fuelled rumours that he had orchestrated his own wife’s death. With Dudley now conveniently widowed, perhaps the queen had found her consort at last.

    Overall
    "Interesting and well written"

    It seems at times that this is more about the rise/fall and life of Dudley than what happened to his wife, Amy. However, what happened to his wife was very closely linked to his life at court. As well as this it also gives an interesting insight into the politics of the Elizabethan Court and the diplomacy of the age.



    Well researched and the narrator makes it very easy to listen to and that he actually enjoyed the book himself. Makes this period of history accessible in interesting.
