Hallam, Henry

 

Born July 9, 1777, in Windsor; died Jan. 21, 1859, in Penshurst. English historian; one of the first students of English constitutional history.

Idealizing the English constitution, Hallam viewed all of English history as the development of the principle of constitutional monarchy. He criticized the absolutism of the Tudors and Stuarts, but at the same time, he held a negative view of the 17th-century English bourgeois revolution and highly praised the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688-89.
