    More Information:

    Howard (1626-98) is best known for his plays, and for being the brother-in -law of Dryden. "Howard's final years were taken up with both professional and literary concerns. Late in 1694 he helped Betterton and his actors to procure a licence for the new theatre at Lincoln's Inn Fields; and in 1695 he renewed his friendship with John Dryden. Meanwhile, he had published his History of the Reigns of Edward and Richard II (1690), involving him in the ongoing controversy concerning the divine right of kings"... [ODNB]        Wing H2999.
