The Death of Amy Robsart

Did she fall or was she pushed? In this special episode we investigate the mysterious death of Amy Robsart, wife of Robert Dudley, found dead in 1560 with a broken neck at the bottom of a short flight of stairs. Did she just happen to fall or, as many people have speculated, was she murdered by her ambitious husband in his bid to marry Elizabeth I?
