A descendant of a noble English family, Henry Neville (1620–1694) was an influential political figure and a prominent intellectual in the tumultuous phase from the execution of Charles I in 1649 to the Glorious Revolution of 1688, that is to say, the period when England went through the crucial stages of the civil war by ending royal absolutism, followed by the republican interlude and the Restoration, and the laying of the foundations of European constitutionalism.
