This chapter describes the education of Edward de Vere, Lord Bolbec. Lord Bolbec's tutor from the age of eight was Thomas Fowle, of St John's College, Cambridge, who had attained his BA in 1550, and his MA in 1553. In October 1558 Lord Bolbec entered Queens' College in Cambridge. Boys were admitted to Cambridge colleges not because they were intellectually precocious, but because their families could afford to lodge them under the supervision of college dons, just as other well–heeled boys joined noble or royal households. Lord Bolbec's name disappears from college records after March 1559, nor did he receive a BA with his classmates in Lent 1562. His subsequent education seems to have been supervised by Sir Thomas Smith.
