Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon

Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon (18 February 1609 – 9 December 1674), was an English statesman, diplomat and historian, who served as chief advisor to Charles I during the First English Civil War, and Lord Chancellor to his son from 1660 to 1667. Unlike many contemporaries, Hyde largely avoided involvement in the political disputes of the 1630s, until elected to the Long Parliament in November 1640. Like many moderate Royalists, Hyde was a supporter of constitutional monarchy and the role of Parliament, but by 1642 felt its leaders were seeking too much power. Read more on Wikipedia
