Subject:        Queen Elizabeth I's Other Profession

In Charles Boyce's SHAKESPEARE A TO Z, I came upon an interesting
footnote of history I had not read elsewhere; in addressing the Dark
Lady question Mr. Boyce writes, "Others include Lucy Morgan (active
1579-1600), a one-time lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth who became a
brothel keeper." Queen and brothel keeper--a most amazing woman.
