Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll (1629-1685), Statesman

Sitter associated with 8 portraits
Campbell was created 9th Earl of Argyll in 1663, following the restoration of the title two years after his father, the Marquess of Argyll, was executed for treason. Although he shared few of his father's political convictions, he too was destined to be executed for treason, after leading an abortive Highland rebellion against James VII in 1685, the Scottish dimension of the rising further south by James, Duke of Monmouth.
