Chronos Crime Chronicles - The Death of Amy Robsart : An Elizabethan Mystery Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Amy Robsart was the wife of Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, Robert Dudley, later Earl of Leicester.

In September 1560, she was found dead, her neck broken, at the bottom of a flight of stairs at Cumnor Place.

Amy was twenty-eight when she died and her marriage to Dudley had been one of great absences and loneliness.

Some said she was ill, others that she was desperate.

More sinister rumours talked of murder. In this book we look at Amy's unsolved death and examine who had motive to commit such a dark deed.

Was it an accident, suicide or murder? The Death of Amy Robsart is the first volume in an exciting new historical true crime series from Chronos Books.
