INTRODUCTION:

Titles gratuitously awarded to, or stolen by, Oliver Cromwell of Huntingtonshire,  England were not appreciated nor honored by Ireland. To the titles garnered by Oliver at home, the unappreciative Irish added the titles of Master Thief, Rapist and Murderer.

There are some 13,000 documents (and growing) that mention  Oliver Cromwell. I have read a few books which mention him in some detail, but I find it impossible to write objectively about that man.

I am researching Cromwell and intend to put together from facts that seem never quite to agree, a fairly accurate history of Cromwell in Ireland, beyond the fact he killed about 618,000 Irish citizens........though that were entirely enough for most.

But until then, I found the following "tongue in cheek" and somewhat inaccurate timeline of Cromwell's accomplishments, written by a person by name of Robert Cromwell, bob.cromwell@insightbb.com . So yes, Bob is a real person and not afraid to use his real name.....and we do have permission to copy, warts and all.
