    Of interest is Marlowe’s praise of Henry Wriothesley verses Shakespeare’s praise of him and on why Henry’s “Star” had to wait ten years before shining as a Knight in Order of the Garter under King James I in 1603. He had been  marked down for attendance at Windsor on the 26th of June in 1593; but that became gone gone beyond the beyond. Why? Well one approach to an answer may begin with Shakespeare’s “There lives more life in one of your fair eyes, Than both your poets can in praise devise.” Sonnet 83.
