The biographies include many of the powerful political figures of Elizabeth's reign such as SirWilliam Cecil, Sir Robert Dudley, Sir Amias Paulet, Thomas Sackville and Sir Christopher Hatton, as well as the middling figures like Laurence Tomson and Richard Topcliffe, the 'parliament men' Thomas Norton and William Fleetwoodand the firebrand Peter Wentworth.
