British nobility, the Second Earl of Essex who made expeditions of conquest and was privy councilor to Queen Elizabeth I in 1593. He was the most famous Earl of an important family whose members played roles in English history.
Educated at Trinity, Cambridge, Devereaux became popular in the court of Queen Elizabeth. In 1586 he joined Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicaster, in Holland where they boldly fought in the siege of Zutphen. At the time of Dudley's death in 1588, he became the favorite of the queen who was then angered at his marriage in 1590 to the widow of Sir Philip Sidney.
They had a famous quarrel in 1598, after which they reconciled but were never fully trusting again. He was named Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in 1599 and when he failed to make a truce, the queen charged him with deserting his post and put him to trial in June 1600. Devereaux was beheaded at the Tower of London 2/25/1601 OS.
