Irish Statesman. He was a campaigner for Irish Home Rule, and a Member of Parliament for Meath 1875. He became President of the National Land League in 1879, giving him great influence during the 'land war' of 1879 to 1882. He was arrested in 1881, and released in 1882 at the instigation of British Prime Minister William E. Gladstone, whom he eventually persuaded of the justice of Irish Home Rule. However Parnell's home Rule Bill was defeated in 1886. He was accused and completely acquitted of support of Irish terrorism, 1887 to 1889. At this point, when he was virtually "uncrowned King of Ireland", his influence suddenly collapsed when he was cited as co-respondent in the divorce case of Kitty O'Shea. He never recovered his grip on the Home Rule movement which was soon riven by dissension. He died in the arms of Kitty O'Shea, five months after marrying her.
