Sample text

Henry’s fixation and its aftermath spawned decades of religious discord that brutally cost the lives of hundreds of men and women who remained faithful to their creeds on both sides of the Catholic–Protestant divide. Three months after Elizabeth’s birth (on 7 September 1533 at Greenwich Palace) she had been moved to Hatfield with her own household. She was joined there shortly afterwards by seventeen-year-old Mary (the only child of Henry VIII and his Spanish wife Katherine of Aragon), who was now legally bastardised and formally stripped of her royal rank of princess because of the divisive annulment of the king’s marriage with her mother.

How could she therefore marry Philip? It would dishonour the memory of her father. Moreover, no dispensation from the Pope could be sought, as ‘she denied point-blank’ the authority of Rome. How she must have savoured the irony of this response! In addition, she had been warned that after marrying Philip, he would return to Spain ‘directly’. The Count told his master: ‘This she said with great laughter as if she could read [my] secret thoughts. ’43 At last that March, Elizabeth gave her final and definitive answer.

Within days of the Duke of Norfolk’s release in August 1570 from the Tower into house arrest at his London townhouse at the former Carthusian monastery in Charterhouse Square, he was reluctantly embroiled in a plot involving the Florentine double agent Roberto Ridolphi, who begged him to write to the Duke of Alba, to seek assistance for Mary Queen of Scots. 36 On 12 April, Charles Bailly, a young Fleming in her service, was arrested in the Channel port of Dover and found to be carrying seditious books from Catholic exiles.
