Sir Philip Sidney (30 November 1554 – 17 October 1586) was an English poet, courtier, scholar and soldier who is remembered as one of the most prominent figures of the Elizabethan Age. Sir Philip Sidney was the archetypal heroic courtier of the Elizabethan era acclaimed as much for his sonnets as his bravery, handsome looks and sense of ideal romance. He was the inspiration for romanticised lyrics with an Elizabethan theme in popular music, possibly even the international pop band Queen. He died tragically young whilst still in his 30s, 32 to be precise, an eternal wooer laid to rest in St Paul's Cathedral, London. The popsong Love letters in the Sand is thought to allude to Sir Philip Sidney.
