Short biography
Jane Lady Lumley, née Fitzalan, was the first woman to translate the Greek playwright Euripides into English in 1557. Her father Henry Fitzalan, 19th earl of Arundel, educated Jane and her sister particularly well for the period. Her scholarship and learning were well known in Tudor England. Her translation of "Iphigeneia at Aulis" is the first known dramatic work by a woman in English.
