Fulke Greville’s tomb to be probed, solve Shakespeare mystery

To those who believe William Shakespeare did author his plays, Fulke Grevillie has always been a top choice for who truly did. It was rumoured that all the original manuscripts were buried with him. Now an endoscope will be used to probe the tomb and determine if this is true. Exciting!
A prominent 17th-century nobleman, Greville was a renowned scholar, soldier, statesman and spy.
Like his dearest friend Sir Philip Sidney, he was also an accomplished author.
So talented, indeed, that some believe he was the true author of several of Shakespeare’s works.
For years this has been little more than conjecture; fuel for the lively and often hostile debate between Anti-Stratfordians – those who deny that an ill- educated grain merchant and actor such as William Shakespeare could possibly have produced such a stunning oeuvre – and outraged traditionalists.
Now, however, the tantalising prospect of a definitive answer has been raised. More intriguingly still, the explanation, hidden in a series of clues scattered throughout his work and on the Warwick monument, is said to come from Fulke Greville himself.

  1. My husband and I visited Warwick in June 2011. The word at the castle was that one box had been opened and the papers upon being exposed to the air had turned to dust. The first box had contained papers, but was unable to be read. The two remaining boxes were still possibly going to be subjected to a more careful probe. We visited the Collegiate Church of St. Mary, and when we mentioned what we had heard at Warwick castle, the lady at the church became very protective and pooh poohed the story about the boxes contents. Very interesting. I do believe there is a movie about this coming out in the next month or so called “Anomyous”.
