Robert Dudley


British nobility, 1st Earl of Leicester, the fifth son of John Dudley. When Queen Elizabeth I ascended the throne, he became her favorite with offices, honors and wealth bestowed upon him. In 1564 he was created Baron Denbigh, Earl of Leicester and Chancellor of Oxford University.

In his expeditions, he demonstrated no military capacity.

Due to his close friendship with the Queen, when his wife, May Robsart, was found dead at the foot of the palace stairs, he was suspected of aiding her fall. He later made a second marriage and had a son 8/07/1574. He denied the marriage but did agree to support the boy.

Died 4 September 1588 at Cornbury, England.
