Today in 1591 Sir Christopher Hatton died. He is remembered for being the Lord Chancellor of England, and he was a favorite of Elizabeth. He first caught Elizabeth’s attention in the early 1560’s - he was an excellent dancer, was personable, charming, and intelligent. He became a Gentleman of the Privy Chamber in 1564, and by 1572 he was appointed captain of the Yeoman of the Guard. He is said to have been a Roman Catholic in all but name, yet he treated religious questions in a moderate and tolerant way.
