Charles Stewart Parnell

Charles Stewart Parnell Charles Stewart Parnell (1846-1891) supported a policy of obstruction and violence to attain Home Rule, and became the president of the Nationalist Party in 1877.

Short Biography:

In 1879 he approved the Land League, formed to fight the eviction of peasants, and his attitude led to his imprisonment in 1881. His career was ruined in 1890 when he was cited as co-respondent in a divorce case.

Parnell, born in County Wicklow, was elected member of Parliament for Meath 1875. He welcomed Gladstone's Home Rule Bill, and continued his agitation after its defeat in 1886.

In 1887 his reputation suffered from an unfounded accusation by The Times of complicity in the murder of Lord Frederick Cavendish. Three years later came the adultery scandal, and for fear of losing the support of Gladstone, Parnell's party deposed him.
