What was the relationship between Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex like?

Who was the earl of Essex and what is his connection to Shakespeare?

The Earl of Essex was the title of Robert Devereux, son of Lettice Knollys and stepson of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Because of his relationship with Leicester, Essex became one of Elizabeth I's favourites. He was however a vain, ambitious and incompetent man. He has two connections with Shakespeare. First, in Henry V, Shakespeare makes reference to the Earl's campaign to defeat the rebels in Ireland. Second, and more interestingly, Essex, after returning from a miserable defeat in Ireland, and expecting Elizabeth to be angry with him, decided that he was more popular than the queen. He likened himself to Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Lancaster, who usurped the throne from Richard II, and to give himself more confidence, had Shakespeare's company play Shakespeare's play Richard II which concerns the usurpation. All for naught though, as the Queen was immensely popular and Essex was not, and his miserable rebellion was quickly mopped up and he was quickly consigned to the Tower where he was beheaded.
