William Cavendish, later Duke of Newcastle, was unquestionably one of the outstanding horsemen of his period. He was, however, much besides. A writer himself, he befriended authors ranging from Jonson to Dryden. He could talk painting with Van Dyck and science with Hobbes and Descartes. Turned man of action by the Civil War, he held the north of England with viceregal powers. - pages17.
