This chapter focuses events during Edward de Vere's early teen years. Long before his seventeenth birthday, which occurred on 12 April 1567, Oxford developed deeply rooted habits of self–importance and fiscal extravagance, spending heavily on clothes, personal weapons, horses, and retainers. On 7 May 1565 Countess Margery requested that monies from family properties be guarded by friends during her son's minority, fearing that her son's extravagance will pose a danger to the livery of his estates six years hence.
