A Favorite of the Queen: The Story of Lord Robert Dudley and Elizabeth Iby Jean Plaidy
Synopses & Reviews
Torn between her heart’s passion and duty to her kingdom, a young queen makes a dark choice…
Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester was the most powerful man in England during the reign of Elizabeth I. Handsome and clever, he drew the interest of many women—but it was Elizabeth herself that loved him best of all.

But when Amy suddenly dies, under circumstances that many deem to be mysterious at best, the Queen and her lover are placed under a dark cloud of suspicion, and Elizabeth is forced to make a choice that will define her legacy.
