The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange and the Glorious Revolution of 1688
The Lions of Judah

Matthew Glozier

Author text to follow

 

The Huguenot Soldiers of William of Orange and the Glorious Revolution of 1688: The Lions of Judah provides the first full-scale, scholarly analysis of the political, religious and social rationale which underlay Huguenot support for William of Orange in 1688. In the context of the Huguenot exodus from France and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, the role of the Huguenot soldiers within an international Protestant political context is explained through the use of rich biographical and historical detail.
… By examining William of Orange's role as an international Protestant politician, his relationship with the Elector of Brandenburg and Britain’s James II, and the response of all three to the persecution of the Huguenots, the international significance of confessional faith to the events of the Glorious Revolution of 1688 is explained. Special attention is given to the role played by the most prominent Protestant soldiers of William’s army, the Huguenot refugees and the British soldiers of the Anglo-Dutch Brigade. This book will be a rich source of biographical information about hundreds of Huguenot soldiers in British, Dutch and Brandenburg service in the period 1670 to 1700.

“This book’s particular merit lies in its international scope and its focus on Huguenot officers serving William in the Netherlands and Ireland … Discusses a worthwhile and neglected subject.” Albion

“Glozier’s study is most impressive in its reconstruction of the Huguenot community. His book has a prosopographical approach and contains a treasury of biographical information, based upon which the author analyzes the social and religious background of the soldiers … an important and innovative contribution to Dutch military historiography as well as Huguenot studies and may prove an important incentive to study this topic in more depth.” H-Albion

“The book’s correction of previous historians and assemblage of useful data in one place make it a valuable starting point for early-modern French, British, Dutch and military historians.” 17th-Century Military News
