Hi Eric,

Many a monster understood the political and PR benefits of being a Patron of the Arts-in fact it is a very modern concept and there has been some very unsavoury and despicable individuals in the last century who have tried to use it as some kind of shield to conceal their unspeakable acts against humanity.

Too right!

Hi Eric, 

I have read a few variants of Leicester meeting his death by poison which given he was one of the worst poisoners in history it would certainly have been a form of divine poetic justice.

Yes, but what a convenient cover story: he died by his own hand so no one should suspect that he may have been murdered (silenced) by Elizabeth's protectors. Now I'm writing fiction. I should stick to the facts. Trouble is they are few and far between...

The plot thickens. What a movie the real history of the Elizabethan era would make!

For background information about Sir Francis Walsingham, I found these two short articles helpful:

September 4, 1588 Death of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester (c.1532-1588), K.G., died Cornbury, Oxon. His many posts included: Lord Steward of the Household, Privy Councillor, Master of the Horse 1558-1587, Chancellor of Oxford University.

Will (1 Aug 1587): ‚ÄėFirst of all before and above all persons it is my duty¬†to remember my most dear and most gracious Sovereign whose creature under God¬†I have been and who hath been a most bountiful and most princely mistress unto me as well in advancing me to many honours as in maintaining me many ways by her goodness and liberality. And as my best recompense to her most excellent Majesty can be from so mean a man chiefly in prayer to God, so whilst there was any breath in this body I never failed it even as for my own soul. And as it was¬†my greatest joy in my life-time to serve her to her contentation, so is it not unwelcome to me being the will of God to die and end this life for her service‚Äô.

‚ÄėAnd yet albeit I am not able to make any piece of recompense of her great goodness, yet will I presume to present unto her a token of a humble faithful heart as the last that ever I can send her, and with this prayer withal that it may please the Almighty God not only to make her the oldest prince that ever he gave over England but to make her the godliest, the virtuous and the worthiest in his sight that ever he gave over any nation, that she may indeed be a blessed mother and nurse to this people and church of England, which the mighty God grant for his Christ‚Äôs sake‚Äô.

‚ÄėThe token I do bequeath unto her Majesty is the jewel with three great emeralds with a fair large table diamond in the midst, without a foil, and set about with many diamonds without foil, and a rope of fair white pearl, to the number of six hundred, to hang the said jewel at, which pearl and jewel was once purposed for her Majesty against a coming to Wanstead‚Äô.

To the Earl of Warwick: ‚ÄėI leave to him first as dear an affection as ever brother bore‚Äô. ‚ÄėFor a remembrance I send him a cup of gold...which hath the French Order [St Michael] and the English [the Garter] in one with a plain gold chain at it...in remembrance that his brother was of both the Orders and not only so but almost the eldest of both the Orders in both the Realms. But what is this but vanity and so much vanity‚Äô. Also to the Earl: Kenilworth Castle, and after his death to Robert Dudley, Leicester‚Äôs ‚Äėbase son‚Äô by Lady Sheffield.

Wanstead manor, Essex: to the Countess of Leicester.
Leicester refers to being ‚ÄėI know not how many thousands above twenty in debt‚Äô.

Funeral: Oct 10, St Mary’s Church, Warwick. Chief Mourner: Earl of Essex (stepson). His monument remains, with his 2nd wife, erected by her.

The widowed Countess of Leicester (1543-1634) married (3) (1589)
Sir Christopher Blount (executed for high treason in 1601, as was Essex).

Inventories were made of Leicester’s works of art at Kenilworth, Leicester House, and Wanstead, including many portraits of himself, and several of the Queen. Described and illustrated by Elizabeth Goldring in Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and the World of Elizabethan Art (New Haven and London, 2014).

 

Court news. Sept 7, Sir Francis Walsingham to Sir Robert Sidney:
‚ÄėHer Majesty...will not suffer anybody to have access unto her, being very much grieved with the death of the Lord Steward...He died suddenly, contrary to the expectation of the physicians or those that were about him‚Äô. [
Scot.ix.611].

  Sept 7, Marco Messia, of the Earl of Leicester:

‚ÄėThe last time I saw him was at the Earl of Essex‚Äôs review [August 26] at the window with the Queen. On the previous week I had seen him go all through the city, accompanied by as many gentlemen as if he were a king, and followed by his household and a troop of light horse. He was going from a country house of his to St James‚Äôs, and was quite alone in his coach. He had gone though a few days before on horseback, even more splendidly accompanied, and showed every appear- ance of perfect health, as if he would have lived for years. For the last few months he has usually dined with the Queen, a thing, they say, such as has never been seen in this country before‚Äô.

[Sept 7] anon newsletter: ‚ÄėThe Earl of Leicester died almost suddenly on his way to the baths...The Queen is sorry for his death, but no other person in the country. She was so grieved that for some days she shut herself in her chamber alone, and refused to speak to anyone until the Treasurer and other Councillors had the doors broken open and entered to see her. The Lord Chancellor [Hatton], now that Leicester is dead, has much more power than before‚Äô. [Span.iv.420,431].

Stow,¬†Annals:¬†‚ÄėAll men, so far as they durst, rejoiced no less outwardly at his death than for the victory lately obtained against the Spaniard‚Äô.

Court news. Nov 5 [from Marco Messia]: ‚ÄėThe Queen is much aged and spent, and is very melancholy. Her intimates say that this is caused by the death of the Earl of Leicester; but it is very evident that it is rather the fear she underwent and the burden she has upon her‚Äô...

It appears from the above that a version of Hamlet had already been written by 1584-5 and performed in England, the Low Countries, Germany and Denmark sometime in or even possibly before 1585. However according to another source, the first version of the Shakespeare play Hamlet, was written several years before in c.1580-1.  (A PHOENIX, FRANCIS BACON AND HIS EARLIEST SHAKESPEARE PLAY HAMLET A TUDOR FAMILY TRAGEDY, 9)

https://sirbacon.org/FRANCIS BACON AND HIS EARLIEST SHAKESPEARE PLAY HAMLET A TUDOR FAMILY TRAGEDY.pdf

On page 19:

Following his return from banishment in France by his royal mother Queen Elizabeth and his father Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester after the reading of his foster father Sir Nicholas Bacon’s last will and testament, in Trinity Term 1579, Bacon was admitted to Gray’s Inn to study law. It was in his early years at Gray’s Inn that according to his word cipher deciphered by Dr Orville Owen he wrote the first version of his immortal play The Tragedy of Hamlet widely seen as the greatest drama in the Western canon.

Fascinating next few pages. A short sample from pages 21>22:

FRANCIS BACON

   ’Tis true, the wheel has come full circle; I’m here and it is time to speak. List a brief tale, And when ’tis told let sorrow split my heart, If I but print my royal mother or My father true. I lost all by mine own folly: Ere I was twenty-one, I was a pack-horse In his great affairs; to royalize his blood, I spent mine own much better blood than his, And, though he was a liberal rewarder Of his friends, he forgot his own poor son, And, like the bees who are nurtur’d for their sweet taste, My pains yield him engrossments to the bitter end.

He proceeds to relate how his royal mother Queen Elizabeth and his father Robert Dudley discovered he had written his immortal play Hamlet:

FRANCIS BACON

At twenty, I was to their yoke subdued, I’m bound by oath, on my peril, Not to alter my condition, and forbid To say I am the child of royalty, And, should I tell, I would be hang’d: but this, Like hectic in my blood, did rather exasperate Than make me afraid, and I was importunate. My mother learn’d that I wrote Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, And then I was lost.

Then later on page 23:

His royal mother Elizabeth accuses him of using cunning speeches to breed suspicion in the mind and hearts of the people:

QUEEN ELIZABETH

 Upon the witness of your father, my Lord Leicester, You, my son, were seen the night last gone by, Among the worst company in the kingdom, Attempting to make them instruments to plague us; But there’s a remedy to medicine Destruction to this lawless tribe,-a prescription Of rare and prov’d effect,-and I’ll bestow it On them; we’ll have them whipp’d, and among them, My son, I will fitly bring you to your knees.

More fury, abuse and threats of violence and death followed in the kind of language that would embarrass a fishmonger’s wife but an undaunted Francis presented a vision that would capture and mesmerise the world:

FRANCIS BACON

I will create Strange Tragedies for mine eternal jewel, Shall speak to Hamlet of his father’s foul And most unnatural murder.

Thus, Sir Francis followed the cursus honorum laid out by Sir Nicholas for his sons, in attending first Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1573, then joining Gray’s Inn at the same time as his brother Anthony, in 1576. However, instead of pursuing a traditional legal education immediately (he was still only fifteen), Bacon travelled to France with the English ambassador, Amias Paulet.

I thought I knew "Hamlet" at least half well, but I had no idea that it contains references to nine English kings! I wish I could speed read because, thanks to the Phoenixes, "Leicester's Commonwealth" is now a must. I need a larger brain!
