A favourite of Queen Elizabeth I, Sir Henry Lee was known as 'the most accomplished cavaliero' in England. This handsome, entertaining and highly convivial gentleman was an important participant in life at court as Elizabeth's tournament champion. He created the spectacular Accession Day tournaments held annually before London crowds of more than 8,000 people, was Lieutenant of Elizabeth's palace at Woodstock, and Master of the Armoury at the Tower of London during the Spanish Armada. This is the only biography of Sir Henry Lee in print, and explores the interaction of politics, culture and society of the Elizabethan court through the eyes of a popular and long-serving courtier.
