Birth: 1587
Death: Jul. 17, 1645

Favourite courtier of James I until being eclipsed by the Duke of Buckingham. He became Earl of Somerset in 1613. In the same year he married Frances Howard, the Countess of Essex. Three years later, Carr and his wife fell from grace when the murder of Sir Thomas Overbury was revealed to have been arranged by them. They were sentenced to death and spent six years in prison before retiring into obscurity. A daughter of this marriage, Anne Carr, married into the Russell family (Dukes of Bedford), and Robert died living in the Russell-built Covent Garden.
