Sir Francis Walsingham
Walsingham died in 1590, probably of testicular cancer. He had suffered ill-health throughout his life, exacerbated by the pressures of a difficult job in a very dangerous era.
The stabilising effect of Elizabeth’s marriage and sons have made Walsingham’s career somewhat less stressful and his health has been a little better. Thus he is still alive in 1593, though increasingly frail.
