The cover of John Dudley 1504-1553 by David Loades

John Dudley was an efficient, ruthless administrator, who struck a sensible balance in England's foreign policy, and did much to remedy the financial crisis which Somerset had left in October 1549. He has been traditionally one of the most misunderstood men of the sixteenth century. He was branded as the "bad Duke" in contrast to the "good Duke", who was the Duke of Somerset, and held responsible for the deaths of both Thomas Seymour and of Seymour's brother, Protector Somerset. Within the last twenty years however his reputation has improved dramatically.
