The Leaguer of Lathom by William Harrison Ainsworth is about the honorable and sacrificing Lord Strange and his duty to the king and Parliament, despite his enemies running his name through the mud and condemning him to death. Excerpt: "You are right," said Lord Strange. "They have persuaded the king that I am ambitious, and have pretensions to the crown like my uncle Ferdinando, and they say I shall desert him as my ancestor, Lord Stanley, deserted, Richard the Third at Bosworth Field, when he gave the crown to his son-in-law, the Earl of Richmond. His majesty, therefore, views my conduct with jealousy and suspicion."
