George Monck, 1st Duke of Albemarle (1608-1670), Soldier and statesman

Sitter associated with 49 portraits
George Monck was one of the architects of the Restoration of the monarchy, along with Pepys' patron Edward Montagu. He was an accomplished military commander and served as Joint-Commander-in-Chief with Prince Rupert, in the campaign of 1666 against the Dutch. Pepys disliked Monck and criticised his judgement calling him a 'heavy dull man'. 'I know not how, that blockheaded Albemarle hath strange luck to be beloved, though he be, and every man must know, the heaviest man in the world, but stout and honest to his country' 23rd October 1667
