Robert Dudley had endeared himself to the queen by bailing her out of substantial debt  before she took the throne. As a son of the Duke of Northumberland, who had conspired  against Mary, Dudley was imprisoned in the Tower of London at the same time as  Elizabeth, and they sometimes saw each other there. Dudley was famous as a great  horseman, and also as a talented dancer. Not surprisingly, the young Elizabeth was  quite taken with this dashing character. As a later chapter will discuss, a scandalous  romance took place between them, the details of which remain debated today. The  behavior of the current British royalty hardly warrants mention in comparison to  Elizabeth's romantic exploits!

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
