"Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, KG, PC (10 November 1565[1] – 25 February 1601), was an English nobleman and a favourite of Elizabeth I. Politically ambitious, and a committed general, he was placed under house arrest following a poor campaign in Ireland during the Nine Years' War in 1599. In 1601, he led an abortive coup d'état against the government and was executed for treason." (Wikipedia)
