Sitter in 1 portrait
Largely self-educated, Stopford Green's scholarly career began as a research assistant to her husband, the historian J.R. Green, with whom she produced A Short Geography of the British Islands (1879). As a widow she produced a two-volume study, Town Life in the Fifteenth Century (1894). Irish by birth, in 1908 she published The Making of Ireland and its Undoing 1200-1600, which was strongly nationalist in tone, and she campaigned throughout her life for Irish home rule.
