Elizabeth Brooke, Lady Wyatt

Elizabeth Brooke, Lady Wyatt

Elizabeth Brooke was the wife of Thomas Wyatt, the poet, and the mother of Thomas Wyatt the younger who led Wyatt's Rebellion against Mary I. She was the sister of George Brooke, 9th Baron Cobham.

Elizabeth separated from Thomas Wyatt and openly lived in adultery. In 1540, they were forced by Henry VIII to reconcile. This was as Wyatt had been accused of treason and only the begging of Catherine Howard had saved his life. She should not be confused with her beautiful niece, Elisabeth Brooke, who married William Parr, 1st Marquess of Northampton and was close to Edward VI of England, Jane Grey and Elizabeth I of England.

In 1542, the night after Catherine Howard had been condemned to death for adultery, Henry VIII held a dinner for many men and women. He was said to pay great attention to Elizabeth and to Anne Bassett. Both were thought to be possible choices for wife number six.
