Excerpt from Lives of the Queens of Scotland and English Princesses, Vol. 7: Connected With the Regal Succession of Great Britain
Her conduct in this instance shows that she desired to owe her restoration to liberty and empire, and, above all, her recog nition as the heiress of England, to the liberal reformers, of whom Norfolk was accounted the head. Unfortunately, the intrigues of the Earl of Northumberland for the Spanish mar ringe offended Norfolk, and alarmed many of the Protestant no bles who had previously been disposed to support her cause, but could not give her credit for preferring a consort of the reform ed faith to one of her own religion, supported by the power and wealth of the King of Spain and the inﬂuence of the P0pe.2 Her self-sacrificing refusal to avail herself of Leonard Dacre's proﬂ'ercd assistance to affect her escape from Win gfield Manor House, ought to have convinced them of her sincerity.
