Summary
On 21 September 1578, a wedding ceremony was conducted between Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, favourite and one-time suitor to Queen Elizabeth and the Queen's cousin, the widowed 34-year-old Lettice Knollys, then Countess of Essex with a noted resemblance to Elizabeth. The wedding was a closely guarded secret because Queen Elizabeth would not have given the royal consent necessary for such a marriage. When the secret was revealed, the furious Queen permanently banished Lettice from court and she was to suffer the consequences of Elizabeth's fury for the rest of her life. Two decades later Queen Elizabeth's new favourite, Lettice's son, Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, led a rebellion against the Queen and was executed for high treason in 1601. All this served to intensify Elizabeth's dislike for her cousin: she had become Queen Elizabeth's adversary and rival. This is her story
