Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (1609-1674), Statesman

Sitter associated with 23 portraits
A great statesman and historian, Clarendon served Charles II as secretary during his exile, and became his chief minister at the Restoration. He was much disliked, both for the moderation of his policies, and for his personal pomposity, and he was ousted from power in 1667 by the Cabal ministry. In exile in Rouen, he wrote an important work on the Civil War, the History of the Great Rebellion. Through his daughter Anne Hyde, Duchess of York, he was grandfather to both Queen Mary and Queen Anne.
