Rate this:
This book is a scholarly edition of the Earl of Leicester's two surviving household accounts (from 1558 to 1561), and the fragments of his disbursement books (from 1584 to 1586). It also contains an appendix of surviving lists of household accounts in the British Isles. Robert Dudley, the first Earl of Leicester, was a leading figure at the court of Elizabeth I. This is the only collection of such information in print for such a prominent and notorious courtier and, as such, provides a valuable insight into the personal finances of members of the Elizabethan court. This book will be essential for any serious scholar of Elizabethan high politics.
