Character description

Lady Arbella Stuart (1575-1615) was an English aristocrat whose royal Tudor blood put her in direct line to inherit the crown from the childless Elizabeth I. Orphaned in childhood, Arbella was raised by her maternal grandmother Bess of Hardwick. In 1610, Arbella was imprisoned by King James I for secretly marrying William Seymour, another potential candidate for the throne, and she died in the Tower of London.
