Hello! I am Christine Hartweg and I am the author of John Dudley: The Life of Lady Jane Grey’s Father-in-Law and Amy Robsart: A Life and Its End.
I have long been fascinated with both Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester, Queen Elizabeth I’s favourite, and his father, John Dudley Duke of Northumberland. Both men have had a very bad press, mostly underserved. The Dudleys were fascinating people, and the lives of Edmund, John, Robert, and Robert Dudley junior spanned the 16th century and beyond.
For basic information about Robert Dudley and his family please see the Who’s Who? page, where you can also find links to more comprehensive biographies I originally wrote for another site.
