William Cecil, Ireland, and the Tudor State

This chapter considers contemporary perceptions of William Cecil and his relationship with Ireland. Described by some as the ‘careful father’ of the kingdom of Ireland, and yet resented by some in the army for allegedly placing the preservation of the queen's treasure before the well-being of those many thousands of men fighting her wars, this chapter will explore the extent to which Burghley's association with Ireland entered into political, and where possible public, consciousness.

Keywords:   public perception, Edmund Spenser, Regnum Cecilanum, Thomas Churchyard, soldiers, civil government, treason, Ireland, evil councillor, criticism
