Sir Henry Lee, son of Margaret Wyatt, Anne Boleyn's favorite companion. EXCERPT: 'Lee became Queen Elizabeth I’s champion in 1570 and was appointed Master of the Royal Armouries in 1580 an office which he held until his death. As Queen's Champion, Lee devised the Accession Day tilts held annually on 17 November, the most important Elizabethan court festival from the 1580s. He retired as Queen's Champion in 1590. He was made a Knight of the Order of the Garter in 1597.'
