      Dr Aubrey Burl, a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, now believes she can be revealed as Aline Florio, the wife of an Italian translator, who "loved for her own gratification", "hurt and harmed poets and earls", and indulged in "temptation and callously self-satisfied betrayal of her husband". Dr Burl, who spent years studying a volumes of Shakespeare's own work, biographies and previous papers, said he created a short-list of eight possible candidates for the role of the Dark Lady, including a landlady, a courtesan, beautiful young audience members, and a wig-makers wife.
