Not our period, but Amy Robsart’s is a story that has always fascinated me.
Did she fall, or was she pushed…? I think we all have our theories. I believe Dudley was behind it and shot himself in the foot, so to speak, because Elizabeth took fright. She already knew she was playing with fire, and Amy’s suspicious (and too convenient) demise was too much. Rather late in the day, the ultra-cautious character of Elizabeth’s Tudor grandfather, Henry VII, came to the fore.
