A military and naval commander, and the grandson of the great Elizabethan statesman, Lord Burghley, Wimbledon served under Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I. He eventually came to be regarded as a great military hero, although several of his naval operations against the Spanish in the 1620s were notable failures. He was a knowledgeable patron of the arts and his portrait was painted on a number of occasions by Miereveld.
