Faber and Faber
326,  S. : Ill.
Lord Robert Dudley, Elizabeth I's closest confidant, and Sir William Cecil, her chief political advisor, were the most powerful men in the country during her reign. Famous for their extravagant houses, gardens and parties, they went to extraordinary lengths to win Elizabeth's favour. Dudley created an intoxicatingly romantic garden at Kenilworth Castle and Cecil countered by building Theobalds, a sumptuous palace with spectacular gardens designed by the most famous gardener in the country. Through this story if intense and creative rivalry, Trea Martyn paints a vivid portrait of the splendour of the Elizabethan court: its revelries, intrigues and its sensational gardens.
