Character description

Emilia Lanier, also Aemilia Bassano Lanyer (1569–1645) was a member of the minor English gentry, daughter of a court musician, and a poet in her own right, publishing the work Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum.  She is thought by some to be Shakespeare's Dark Lady.  She was a mistress of Henry Carey, 1st Lord Hunsdon, and perhaps mother of his child.  She married Alfonso Lanier (or Lanyer), a court musician in 1592.
