From the moment Elizabeth I ascended the throne of England word spread the length and breadth of the British Isles: If the Queen ever married she would choose her handsome courtier Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. They were inseparable, for Elizabeth had not exaggerated when she told Leister "I cannot live without seeing you every day." This absorbing and illuminating biography of Lord Leicester is the natural successor to Elizabeth Jenkins' distinguished best seller Elizabeth the Great, acclaimed as the best study ever written of England's incomparable monarch. Includes an Index. "Elizabeth Jenkins has followed up her brilliant Elizabeth the Great with a no less excellent study of the fascinating and complex relationship between the Queen and the man she loved." - Dr. A. L. Rouse
