This chapter considers accusations of sexual crimes against Oxford, specifically, those made by his erstwhile friends, Henry Howard, Charles Arundel, and Francis Southwell. At the same time as they were accusing Oxford of all possible sins, Howard and Arundel were also bent on having Oxford tried for the specific crime of pederasty. To this end they offered testimony from nearly a dozen victims, near–victims, and non–victim witnesses.

Keywords:   sexual crimes, Henry Howard, Charles Arundel, Francis Southwell, pederasty
