Archibald Campbell, 7th Earl of Argyll

Archibald Campbell, 7th Earl of Argyll, also called "Gillesbuig Grumach", was a Scottish peer, politician, and military leader.

Campbell was the son of Colin Campbell, 6th Earl of Argyll. In 1594 he commanded royal troops at the Battle of Glenlivet against Catholic Rebels, especially the Gordons of Huntly.

On 24 July 1592, he married his first wife - Lady Agnes Douglas, daughter of the Earl of Morton. Together they had at least five children, including a son and heir. His nickname, "Gillesbuig Grumach" is the Gaelic for Archibald the Grim. This presumably originates from his first wife and after her 14th-century ancestor, Archibald Douglas, 3rd Earl of Douglas.

After the death of his first wife about 1607 or 1608, he married Anne (Cornwallis), with whom he had at least four more children. In 1618 Archibald Campbell converted to Roman Catholicism, the religion of his new wife, from Presbyterianism.[1] By 1619, he had surrendered his estates to his son, Archibald Campbell.[2] He was made a Knight of the Golden Fleece in 1624. He had announced his new religion from the Netherlands and, as a consequence, he was declared a traitor in Edinburgh on 16 February 1619 and banned from his country. He was very supportive of his new religion even after he was allowed back in 1621. He was interested in military solutions in Ireland in 1622, but he was unable to raise an army.[2] He and his wife returned to Britain and lived at Drury Lane in London having abandoned everything apart from his title to his heir.[2] The 7th Earl of Argyll is buried at Kilmun Parish Church.
