Fulke Greville, Lord Brooke, describes Oxford in early 1579 as ‘Superlative in the Princes favour’, where by ‘the Prince’ Greville meant ‘the Queen’. But instead of conforming his character to his auspicious public image, this chapter details how Oxford pursued a course that led by March 1581 to nearly total self–destruction.

Keywords:   Fulke Greville, Elizabeth I, self–destruction
