About the Author

Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood OM, DBE, FBA, FRHistS (20 July 1910 - 9 March 1997) was an English historian who published under the name C. V. Wedgwood. Specializing in the history of 17th-century England and Continental Europe, her biographies and narrative histories are said to have provided a clear, entertaining middle ground between popular and scholarly works.

She was born in Stocksfield, Northumberland, the only daughter of Sir Ralph Wedgwood, a railway executive, and his wife Iris Veronica Pawson, a novelist and travel writer. She was a great-great-great granddaughter of the potter Josiah Wedgwood.

Dame Wedgwood was educated at home and then at Norland Place School. She earned a First in Classics and Modern History at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, and held honorary degrees from Oxford and Harvard University. She was a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton.

Her published books included The Thirty Years’ War (19338), Oliver Cromwell (1939), Seventeenth Century English Literature (1950), The Last of the Radicals: Josiah Wedgwood, M.P. (1951), The King’s Peace, 1637-1641 (1955), The King’s War, 1641-1647 (1958) and Richelieu and the French Monarchy (1962).
