Robert Devereux Earl of Essex, (1933). Creator: Unknown

Robert Devereux Earl of Essex, (1933). Portrait of Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex (1567-1601), English courtier and favorite of Queen Elizabeth I. In 1599, he requested that he be made lord lieutenant of Ireland, and went to Ireland to quell the rebellion of the Earl of Tyrone. He made an unauthorized truce with Tyrone and returned to England, where he was tried for disobedience, deprived of his offices, and banned from the court. He planned a coup that would get rid of his enemies around the queen and establish those in favour of him around her. However the queens government was more than prepared, and he was arrested. With great reluctance Elizabeth I signed his death warrant, and Essex was executed. After a miniature by John Bettes. From " Gestalten Der Weltgeschichte", a book of cigarette-card portrait miniatures of figures in world history from the last four hundred years. [Germany, 1933]
