The son of William Cecil, Lord Burghley (one of Elizabeth's spymasters) and a protege of Sir Francis Walsingham (Elizabeth's principal spymaster), he was trained by them in matters of spycraft as a matter of course.
One of the arguments used to attempt to inculpate Cecil in the plot are the death-bed allegations of Robert Catesby's servant stating that Cecil and Catesby, one of the principal Gunpowder Plotters, met on three separate occasions in the period leading up to the events of the night of November 5 1605.

Cecil alludes to the fact he had been aware of 'papist activities' for several months leading up to the gunpowder's discovery, but there is no evidence to support this other than his own word.
Cecil though was quick to take the credit for the discovery of the plot, perhaps engineering the discovery (after the delivery of the Monteagle Letter) in order to best affect his position.
Cecil's solutions to England's escalating expenditure (as a result of the Irish Wars) which had put her on the brink of bankruptcy were not well received as he sought extra-parliamentary means of obtaining income.

 Profile of Robert Cecil
Cecil had convinced Essex to accept the almost impossible task of subduing Ireland, and the latter's premature return after only six months in 1599, after making an ill-judged truce with the Earl of Tyrone[6], gave Cecil a much-needed advantage.
Cecil alludes to the fact he had been aware of 'papist activities'[7] for several months leading up to the gunpowder's discovery, but there is no evidence to support this other than his own word.
After Cecil's death, political satire became very popular, pushing the idea that a 'crooked back meant a crooked man'[2], and that an outward deformity was caused by a character inwardly devoid of all natural affection, sympathy and honesty.

William Cecil was interested in genealogy and there is a contemporary pedigree in existence attributing to the Cecils a descent from Sitselt, or Sitsell, who in 1091 received lands in Wales from Robert FitzHamon.
This son became later, in the reign of James I, Earl of Exeter, and he is the ancestor of the Exeter branch of the House of Cecil.
In 1586 Cecil was chiefly responsible for the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, after the discovery of the infamous Babington Plot which had for its aim the assassination of the Queen.

 Robert CECIL (1° E. Salisbury)
Robert Cecil had a spectacular career by any political yardstick, rising to hold jointly the two highest civil offices of the land during the reigns of Elizabeth I, and James VI/I, thus eclipsing the efforts of his father.
After the death of Queen Elizabeth's secretary of state, Francis Walsingham, in 1590, Cecil gradually took over the work of secretary of state, although he was not formally appointed to the office until Jul 1596.
Towards the end of 1611 Cecil gradually became weaker, and after failing to secure a marriage for the young Prince Henry to Felipe III of Spain's sister, his physical deterioration was dramatic, and used as a metaphor for his corruption of power.
