Sitter in 5 portraits
Albemarle was a Dutch-born courtier who came to England as a page to William III in 1688. The King granted him and earldom and Irish lands in 1696, much to the disgust of Parliament, where William's generosity to his Dutch favourites was resented. He remained a particular friend of the King, and on William's death returned to Holland to pursue a military career. He was known as a cheerful and generous man.
