Robert, Earl of Essex
An Elizabethan IcarusBook - 2001
Robert, Earl of Essex, captured Elizabeth I's heart--and almost cost her the throne. Their relationship courted disaster, eventually leading the flamboyant earl to the block. Though fabled in romantic legends, he's even far more interesting in real life. Written by the bestselling author of The Year 1000 , Sir Walter Ralegh , and Majesty , this study brilliantly interlaces the personal with the political.
