A niece of Sir Philip Sidney .

She was a noted patroness of the arts, with works dedicated to her by Ben Jonson, George Chapman, George Wither and William Gamage. Her first and only major work, a pastoral romance, was published in 1621, possibly as an attempt to support herself, since she had been left an impoverished widow. The Countesse of Montgomeries Urania is a long prose narrative with interpolated lyrics, written in imitation of her uncle's Arcadia. [University of Victoria]  -30-
