The enigmatic Henry St. John, Viscount Bolingbrooke, dazzled, provoked and exasperated his contemporaries. He was involved in so many major controversies, and he was in contact with such important ideas and so many prominent historical characters that his career presents a challenge to every historian of the period. He played many roles - Secretary of War during marborough's great victories, Secretary of State during the making of the Treaty of Utrecht, the would-be leader of the Tory party during the Succession crisis of 1714-15, the Prentender's Secretary of State during the 1715 rebellion and the greatest opponent of Sir Robert Walpole.
