Army of the Covenant: More Command

Sir Alexander Hamilton
Loudoun was more of a politician than a soldier, despite being the colonel of regiments of foot and horse. A leading light in the Covenanter cause, he was one of the commissioners sent to London to negotiate with the King after the First Bishops War. Appointed Lord Chancellor of Scotland in 1641, in a vain attempt by Charles to win Loudoun's loyalty; his loyalty was with the Solemn League.

Loudoun would throw his hat behind the Engager movement, having negotiated with Charles at Hampton Court in 1647. He would become disillusioned with the Engagers and he aligned himself with the hard-line Covenanters of the Kirk Party.
