Great topic! I've always wanted to find out more about her.
Once I've read in a source that she had a child. I wonder if this could have been true.

I read a book a few years ago called "Arbella, Englands lost queen". I can't remember the authors name but I am sure you will find it if you go to google. Her grandmother, Bess of Hardwick, ruled her with a rod of iron, and Arbella rebelled. I think she made a couple of attempts to get away. I also think that she was tipped to be the successor of Elizabeth1.
