Richard Cromwell
Birth: Sep. 4, 1626
Death: Jul. 12, 1712

Lord Protector of England and son of Oliver Cromwell. He served in the parliamentary army, sat in parliament (1654, 1656), and was a member of the Council of State (1657). In 1658 he succeeded his father as Lord Protector but he soon fell out with parliament, which he dissolved in 1659. He recalled the Rump Parliament of 1653, but found the task of ruling beyond him, and was forced to abdicate in 1659. After the Restoration of King Charles II to the throne (1660, Cromwell lived in France and Geneva, under the alias ‘John Clarke’, but returned to England in 1680 where he spent the rest of his life. He is buried in Hursley Parish Church in Winchester England. (bio by: Erik Lander)
