    A former History Today 'Summer Reading Selection', The Favourite reveals Sir Walter Ralegh in the role in which his contemporaries knew him best: the courtier who could win the attention - and the heart - of Elizabeth I, while also being 'the most hated man in England'. Using first-hand accounts, Lyons uncovers a maze of ambition and desire, and a brutal Elizabethan world riven by crime, corruption and treachery.
