Talk:The Earl of Essex Rebellion
This page appears to be generally based on two, secondary and non-professional Web articles that themselves do not include references that can be verified. Therefore, I think the page must be edited and citations added to all the "facts" presented here. (I would like to help, but I have no knowledge of this subject!)
Furthermore, the language of the article needs improving. For example, the following paragraph is badly written, in the style parodied by "1066 and All That" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1066_and_All_That).
- "Essex and Mountjoy were not always allies as the favour which Mountjoy received due to his youthful good looks procured for him from Queen Elizabeth I of England aroused the jealousy of Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, and led to a duel between the two courtiers, who later became close friends."
In fact, it could be that this page is unnecessary. A page already exists about the Earl of Essex, and includes a paragraph on the rebellion. Maybe the information on this page could be added to that page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Devereux,_2nd_Earl_of_Essex#Essex_rebellion)?
So if the "moderator" of this page agrees, I'll meanwhile add an

I have quite a bit of knowledge on the rebellion and would be happy to help try and sort the page out, as a paragraph on the subject of the rebellion is abit small Daily Blue91 (talk) 07:55, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
