Lucy Aikin (1781-1864) was a leading historian of the early nineteenth century. Her studies of Elizabeth, Charles I and James I were commercial and critical successes. She also wrote a memoir of her father, John Aikin, and edited the poetry and prose of her aunt, Anna Laetitia Barbauld. Following in the Bluestocking traditions of her aunt, Lucy advocated for women’s education and civil rights, emphasising that the lives and roles of women were essential aspects of world history.
