What makes the queen’s young favourite turn against her?
Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, is one of the most intriguing men of the Elizabethan period. Tall and handsome, he soon becomes a ‘favourite’ at court, so close to the queen many wonder if they are lovers.
The truth is far more complex, as each has what the other yearns for. Robert Devereux longs for recognition, wealth and influence. His flamboyant naïveté amuses the ageing Queen Elizabeth, like the son she never had, and his vitality makes her feel young.
Continuing the story of the Tudors, begun in Tony Riches’ best-selling Tudor trilogy, this epic tale of loyalty, love and adventure follows Robert Devereux from his youth to his fateful rebellion.

Review :

I must confess I don’t really know a lot about Robert Devereux, but the author tells his story in such a wonderful way.
It’s so very well researched that you have the feeling of being transported into time.
Everything and everyone is introduced with such details and in an intruiging way to keep you turning the pages.
If only my history teachers would done it this way!
Definitely going to read other books by this author as this one was not only very enjoyable, but also very informative.
I have the feeling of knowing annd understanding Robert much better now.
