Francis Bacon's Hamlet - A Tudor Family Tragedy


Recommended Posts

I've never looked into these pages , 111 -113, on Henry VI, Part I. But this morning I see a sunken' ship full of treasure!

Bottom of page 112:

I want to point out one quick thing.

TALBOTS is 84 Simple cipher the same as ELIZABETH. I noticed that this morning and it fits with the image I posted then. In this one we see the word "tutor" right above "Talbots".

ELIZABETH TUTOR sounds like ELIZABETH TUDOR to me. Of course I have no clue how they sounded 400 years ago. I might not be able to follow a conversation! But in print, easy to read.

My name, Bacon, am I your Sonne?

These lines?

Therefore deere Boy, mount on my swiftest horse,
And Ile direct thee how thou shalt escape
By sodaine flight. Come, dally not, be gone.

Dee...

Last line of Henry VI, Part I, page 110:

Ver. Nay, let it rest where it began at first.

Then we pass beyond the Two T's (110) into the Triple Tua (111). Always a thing.

This is cute, and a clue:

But the lead in from the last line of page 110, "let it rest where it began at first"?

First line of page 111:

Bass. Confirme it so, mine honourable Lord.

Last line of page 111:

But rather moodie mad: And desperate Stagges,

This suggests that by the beginning of September, 1576, plans for Francis Bacon's departure to Paris in the train of Sir Amias Paulet were already well advanced. At the end of August, Elizabeth stayed in St Albans for a few days and had dinner at Gorhambury House on September 1. No doubt much of the conversation between the Queen, Sir Nicholas, Lady Anne and perhaps Francis himself, would have involved fifteen year-old Francis's immanent departure (September 6).

As we are discussing Elizabeth I in 1576 I searched for any portraits that were made in or around that year. Two outstanding portraits were produced in the previous year, The Phoenix and the Darnley portraits. There is also a revealing 1575 preparatory sketch by Zucchero for a full-length painting.

Fascinating post Eric ‚Äď thank you. Just having a look at the Bull Inn.

St Peter’s Church where the ringing of the bells on Elizabeth’s arrival at The Bull Inn is almost certainly this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_St_Peter,_St_Albans  AL1 3HG

Not sure about the Bull Inn, could be one of these two below that seem to be from the period or maybe there was another one since demolished. Either way, you think if it was one of the ones below that they would make a big ‚Äėsong and dance‚Äô about Elizabeth having been there - but no mention that I can find!

       Francis Bacon's Banishment to France

       Before the above revelation described through his word and biliteral cipher systems

       Bacon was entered at Gray’s Inn on 27 June 1576 fully expecting to commence his

       studies in law whereas the open facts of history show this did not happen. Instead for

       reasons consistent with the revelation of his royal birth and all the complexities and

       difficulties it gave rise to sometime in the autumn it was decided by Queen Elizabeth and

       her secret husband Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester that Francis was to be sent to France

       in the train of Sir Amias Paulet. He says through his word cipher that his royal mother

      Queen Elizabeth wanted him out of the way:

Francis Bacon and the English Secret Service

      For the next two and a half years Bacon resided in Paris and spent time in other parts of 
      France at Blois, Tours and Poitiers as part of the English Embassy train following the 
      court studying foreign policy and sending intelligence reports in cipher back to London, 
      to the head of the English Secret Service Sir Francis Walsingham, his uncle Sir William 
      Cecil, and other members of the Privy Council. He was in Paris when about the 17th 
      February 1579, in the words of his standard biographer Spedding, that Bacon:

Hi A.P. - I could not find much about the Bull Inn either. I can confirm, however, that it isn't the inn of the same name in Wheathampstead, nor the one in London Colney. The Inn where Elizabeth I stayed, as did Francis Bacon as it happens, is no longer standing. In Tudor times it was a large complex of buildings adjoining the White Hart Inn site on Hollywell Hill.

Apparently, Sir Amyas was not particularly gentle, especially when it came to Catholics: 

A fanatical Puritan with a harsh character, Paulet was appointed gaoler of Mary, Queen of Scots, by Elizabeth in January 1585, at Chartley Castle, and guarded her very strictly. He replaced the more tolerant Sir Ralph Sadler who had given Mary far more liberty. He remained her keeper until Mary's execution at Fotheringhay Castle on 8 February 1587. After Mary's conviction, Walsingham wrote to Paulet requesting he assassinate Mary, to spare Elizabeth from involvement in her death. In a letter to Walsingham, Paulet refused to "make so great a shipwreck of my conscience, or leave so great a blot to my poor posterity, as shed blood without law or warrant".[5] He was the appointed Chancellor of the Order of the Garter.

Hello Phoenixes. 

I've drawn a complete blank in terms of any image of The Bull Inn, St Albans which appears to have disappeared long ago from history; odd since it was rated "the best inn (hotel) in England" by someone back in the day, fit enough for a Queen and her retinue in 1576. And right next door to the White Hart Inn with its Rosicrucian mural. Both establishments were almost certainly patronised by the local Lord, Francis Bacon. 

Here is a little more information about the Bull Inn and Ryder House which has occupied part of the site since 1911:

Lastly, here is a short article about Elizabeth I's connections with St Albans:

This is a bit off topic but reading this was it perhaps Amyas Paulet who inspired Bacon to write:

“Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve;
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep‚ÄĚ

and this ‚Äėproves‚Äô that rack/wreck refers to our conscience. (‚Äėthe solemn temples, the great globe itself‚Äô is our head) if ‚Äėshipwreck of my conscience‚Äô was a popular phrase of the time. ūü§Ē

Hi Eric, thanks so much for your research on this. It would indeed have been great to have seen a pic of the Bull Inn but brilliant we know exactly where it was and right next door to The White Hart Inn (Bacon's local!) with all its Rosicrucian connections. Have stayed at The White Hart Inn and seen the mural, it is an extraordinary place and you can certainly feel Francis's presence there. Loved the comments that Elizabeth paid many visits to the St Albans area in the early part of her reign - almost certainly to watch over the progress of her secret son.

   The Death of Sir Nicholas Bacon

    Three days later his beloved foster-father Sir Nicholas Bacon died on 20 February 1579.    

    When news of his death eventually reached Francis in Paris he left for England on 20

    March 1579 carrying a number of secret dispatches for Queen Elizabeth and her chief

    ministers and members of the Privy Council, but by then the solemn funeral ceremony of

    Sir Nicholas had by then already taken place.

Did Francis Bacon delay his return to England to avoid the highly political funeral of Sir Nicholas, given that his relationship with the Queen was so tenuous after "the great revelation"? To get a message from London to Paris might have taken three days - let's allow five. Francis would have received the news informing him of his foster father's death by February 25. It's fairly safe to assume that he would have been told about the funeral arrangements in the dispatch from England. The funeral was on the 9th of March.  Allowing five days for the return journey, in order to attend the funeral in London Francis would have had to depart from Paris by the 4th of March at the latest. This leaves a week between the 25th Feb and 4th March. Why didn't he leave at the beginning of March, instead of March 20? And where was Anthony?

It has to be said that in his final portraits Sir Nicholas Bacon in his late-sixties does not look all that well.

Was Francis Bacon in "Shakespeare Mode" when he put the words "killed me with kindness" into Sir Nicholas's mouth?

 

And if she chance to nod I’ll rail and brawl,

And with the clamor keep her still awake.

This is a way to kill a wife with kindness.

Hi Eric,

We have often wondered why Francis did not return to England quickly enough to attend the funeral of his adoptive father Sir Nicholas Bacon. A few possibilities spring to mind. Even though FB stated himself that he was in Paris he might have in fact been elsewhere either in France, or even Italy or Spain, countries according to one of his early biographies he visited. That FB visited Italy in particular has long been overlooked and suppressed by orthodox Bacon and Shakespeare scholars perhaps not least because 13 of the Shakespeare plays were located or part located in Italy, and indicate that their author travelled through the country and knew intimately. 

It is also possible that FB was at the time closely involved and immersed in very important secret intelligence matters relating to National Security and the personal security of Queen Elizabeth herself which prevented him from returning to England immediately for the funeral of the Great Lord Keeper. 

In our view there must have been a very good reason why Francis did not return for the funeral of his father and the man whom by his own words he deeply loved and admired and such a good reason that Francis did feel able to publicly reveal it during the rest of his lifetime.
