4 June – Robert Dudley and Amy Robsart get married

On this day in Tudor history, 4th June 1550, sweethearts Robert Dudley and Amy Robsart tied the knot at the royal palace of Sheen at Richmond in a service attended by King Edward VI.

This marriage was a love-match, but it lasted just ten years, ending with Amy's death in 1560, a death which is surrounded by controversy.

I share an excerpt from my book "On This Day in Tudor History" in today's video.
