  the biography of John Wilmot - life story
JOHN WILMOT, 2ND EARL OF ROCHESTER,(1647-1680), English poet and wit, was the son of Henry Wilmot, 1st earl.
Wilmot was on bad terms with some of the king’s friends and advisers, including Prince Rupert, and in 1644 he is reported to have said that Charles was afraid of peace and to have advised his supercession by his son, the prince of Wales.
Wilmot chose to pretend that this was Dryden’s work, not Mulgrave’s, and by his orders a band of roughs set on the poet in Rose Alley, Covent Garden, and beat him.
