  Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll and 8th Earl of Argyll (1607 - 27 May 1661) was the de facto head of government in Scotland during most of the Scottish Civil War (which was part of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms).
Argyll, who inherited the title by the death of his father in 1638, and had originally no preference for Presbyterianism, now definitely took the side of the Covenanters in defence of national religion and liberties.
Argyll was mainly instrumental in this crisis in keeping the national party faithful to what was him evidently the common cause, and in accomplishing the alliance with the Long Parliament in 1643.
