But if that was the Earl's opinion then he was fatally mistaken! The Queen might tolerate offence to her person by rebellon she cared for, but she would never ever tolerate a threat to her royal authority, and that is ultimately what the Earl became.

The beginning of the end for Essex was his appointment in as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.
