" Richardson, (SAMUEL.) an eminent English novel-
ist, born in Derbyshire in 1689, was a son of a joiner.
At the village school which he attended he began to dis-
play his faculty for invention. He has informed us that
in his boyhood he was a favourite of young women, who
availed themselves of his talents in the composition of
letters to their lovers. About the age of seventeen he
was apprenticed to a printer of London, named Wilde.
He served as foreman in the printing-office about five
years, and then became a master-printer in Fleet Street.
He married Miss Wilde, a daughter of his former
master. In 1740 he published his first novel, "Pa-
mela," which was very popular and opened a new era in
English romantic literature. Fielding's novel "Joseph
Andrews" was an avowed burlesque of " Pamela."
Richardson acquired a European reputation by his
"History of Clarissa Harlowe," (1748,) which is con-
sidered his capital work. " His personages have all
the reality possible," says Diderot; "his incidents are
realized in the manners of all polished nations. What
fertility in the invention of personages 1 what variety
in the delineation of characters!" He afterwards
produced the novel of "Sir Charles Grandison," (1753,)
which was less successful. Richardson was prosperous ir
business. By the favour of Speaker Onslow he obtained
the lucrative privilege of printing the Journals of the
House of Commons. He wrote No. XCVII. of the
" Rambler" of Dr. Johnson, who was his friend and a
warm admirer of his works. Died on the 4th of July,
1761.

Richelieu, resh'j-loo, de, [Fr. pron. deh resh'le-uh',1
(ARMAND JEAN DU PLESSIS,) CARDINAL, a celebrated
and ambitious French statesman, born at Paris or in
Poitou on the 5th of September, 1585, was a son of
Fran9ois du Plessis and Susanne de la Porte. He
studied at the College of Navarre and that of Lisieux,
and chose the clerical profession. In 1607 he was
consecrated at Rome as Bishop of Lucon. Having been
selected by the States-General to harangue the king in
1614, he acquitted himself so well that he was appointed
almoner to the queen-regnant. He was secretary of
state for a short time in 1616, and acted as mediator
between the king and his mother, Marie de Medicis,
by whose influence he obtained the dignity of cardinal
iii 1622. About two years later he was admitted into
the royal council, which he entered as a master rather
than an adviser. Even the king was overawed by the
intensity of his imperious will. Richelieu soon became
prime minister, and pursued a policy which tended
to humble the powerful nobility, to centralize the ad-
ministration, to render the monarchy absolute, and
to restore the balance of power in Europe, which the
ascendency of the House of Austria had disturbed.
His most powerful opponents were Marie de Medicis
and the king's brother Gaston, who incited an armed
revolt, which was suppressed without difficulty. Among
the important achievements of Richelieu was the subjec-
tion of the Calvinists, who had attempted to gain their
independence or defend their rights by arms, and whose
head-quarters were at Rochelle. He directed in person
the siege of this city, which surrendered in 1628 on
condition that a general pardon should be granted, with
religious toleration to the Protestants. A contest for
ascendency between Richelieu and Marie de Medicis
ended in the exile of the latter in 1630. He maintained
the independence of the civil power against the usurpa-
tions of the Romish Church. He exhibited excessive
severity in the execution of Marillac, Montmorency,

Cinq-Mars, and other noblemen, who were implicated
in a conspiracy against him. The first two of these

were executed in 1632.

of Austria, he supported with a subsidy the Protestants
of Germany, who were waging war against the emperor,
and used his influence to defeat the negotiations for
peace. He also ordered a large body of French troops
to co-operate with the Swedes on the Rhine in 1635.
About this time his armies opposed the Spaniards in
Flanders and Italy, but without much success. In 1635
he founded and endowed the French Academy, the mosl
splendid literary institution of Europe. In the same
year he made a treaty with Holland, which became his
ally in a war against Philip IV. of Spain. The French
gained several victories in Germany and Italy in 1640-
42. During his administration Alsace, Artois, and Rous-
sillon were annexed to France. Richelieu detected a
dangerous conspiracy formed by Cinq-Mars and Gaslon
of Orleans, the former of whom was executed in Sep-
tember, 1642. He died in Paris on the 4th of December,
1642. The people expressed by bonfires their joy for
his death.

Richelieu had some literary taste, and was a liberal
patron of authors, artists, etc. He was the reputed
author of several works, among which are " Memoires
du Cardinal de Richelieu," first printed in 1823, and his
"Political Testament," ("Testament politique,") the
authenticity of which was discredited by Voltaire and
defended by Foncemagne. Although Richelieu was a
great and successful statesman, he is not a general
favourite with the French, like Henry IV. or Louis. XIV.
Many modern French writers argue that his policy did
not conduce to .the real and durable prosperity of the
nation. His system is severely criticised by De Tocque-
ville, (in his "Ancien Regime et la Revolution,") by
Quinet, and by Charles de Rcfmusat.
