Ninth Earl of Argyll

Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll, was born in 1629. He was a consistent supporter of the Royalist cause and was able, after the Restoration, to regain the title forfeited by his father, the 8th Earl and 1st Marquis of Argyll.

His opposition to the extreme measures taken against the Covenanters made him unpopular with the Duke of York (later James II) and he was accused of treason. He escaped death by fleeing to Holland but was later captured and executed for treason on 26 June 1685.
