‘The History of the Rebellion’ by Edward Hyde Clarendon is a famous, early-18th-century account of the English Civil War. It was the first full-scale history of the Civil War written by a figure with first-hand accounts! Clarendon composed this, and his other works of English history, with his own royalist view. He sought to support the Church of England and in doing so ‘History’ directly influenced English politics. David Hume, Scottish philosopher, said this of Clarendon’s masterpiece:

“Clarendon, however, will always be esteemed an entertaining writer, even independent of our curiosity to know the facts, which he relates… He seems perpetually anxious to apologize for the king; but his apologies are often well grounded.”
