Overview

British nobleman Robert Carr (1587-1645) was knighted by James I, and for a time practically ran the kingdom. In 1613 he wed Frances Howard (Lady Essex) after the king nullified her existing marriage. This 1908 history gives us his rise, his tempestuous romance, his implication in a murder plot, and the consequences.
