Gairdner, & R. H. Within weeks, Dudley was created Viscount Lisle (his mother had held the Barony, but the Viscountcy, which could not pass to a woman had been recreated for Arthur Plantagenet, and was created again for Dudley).

Dudley continued to behave cavalierly in money matters. He wrote to the Earl of Rutland that Henry, having been somewhat troubled by the allegations against his wife, was well, and that ‘all true subjects are bound to thank God that these sudden miseries are so soon revealed’.

The Queen’s household, which had been dissolved on the death of Jane Seymour, was reconstituted. Shortly after the tournament came the shocking news that Dudley’s step-father, Lord Lisle, had been accused of treason and sent to the Tower.
