Description
Francis Walsingham, principal secretary to Elizabeth I, was the first modern "spymaster," using methods that anticipated those of MI5 and MI6 and maintaining a network of spies across Europe, including double agents at the highest level in Rome and Spain. Robert Hutchinson—also the biographer of Thomas Cromwell and Henry VIII—depicts Walsingham's entrapment of Mary, Queen of Scots, as a classic intelligence operation that resulted in her execution. Walsingham was a cipher expert, able to intercept and decode other peoples' secret messages, and his brilliantly forged letters made him a fearsome agent of the young queen. Yet even he eventually fell afoul of Elizabeth as her confidence grew and her judgment faded.
