This chapter considers the motivations behind Oxford's accusation of treason against his three erstwhile friends before Christmas 1580. Throwing himself on his knees before the Queen, he confessed to a pro–Catholic conspiracy over the past four years involving himself, Henry Howard, Charles Arundel, and Francis Southwell. He accused Howard of having reconciled to Rome through the offices of the mass–priest Stevens; and he confessed that he himself had spirited Stevens out of the country with the help of the French ambassador Mauvissière, to whom he appealed as a witness.

Keywords:   treason, Henry Howard, Charles Arundel, Francis Southwell
