Royal Armouries

Robert Dudley’s armour is on display in the fantastic Royal Armouries museum in Leeds.

Dudley was the first Earl of Leicester and the favourite of Elizabeth I throughout her reign. This armour was made for jousts and pageants in 1575 probably for when Elizabeth visited his home at Kenilworth Castle
