This chapter describes Oxford's growing reputation for sexual profligacy, for lethal hostility to servants who fell out with him or strangers who told on him, and for an ability to spirit men across the sea to Spain. Oxford also retained apartments in the Savoy. The chapter details how in 1573, Savoy officials demanded from Oxford the sum of £10–11–8 for ‘part rent of two tenements within the Hospital’. Already Oxford was defaulting, even on his rent.
