Question from Annabeth - Lucy Negro and Shakespeare's "Dark Lady"

Hello everyone! I was reading an article about The Dark Lady of the sonnets and I want to know something more about Lucy Negro who was mentioned as possible Dark Lady.Thank you on your answers.


  1. I am one with Michael Wood who argued that Shakespeare's "Dark Lady" was a woman named Emilia Bassano was daughter of a Jewish Italian musician from Venice named Baptista Bassano.

    Bassano was a mistress of Henry Carey, Viscount Hunsdon, who was a patron of William Shakespeare.

  2. See my recent book Shakespeare's Dark Lady from Amberly Publishing UK
