Holingslied Holinshed, Or Hollyushed, Raphael

Holingslied Holinshed, Or Hollyushed, Raphael, an English chronicler, born in the first half of the 16th century, died about 1580. He probably received a university education, and is supposed to have taken orders. Little else is known of his life. Of the "Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland" (2 vols. fol., London, 1577), his share comprises the histories of England and Scotland, the latter being for the most part a translation from the Latin of Hector Boethius. The other portions were done by Stow, Harrison, Hooker, and others. The second edition containing matter added by Thynne, which was offensive to Queen Elizabeth, means were taken to suppress certain sheets in that edition, which were restored in that of 1807. Shakespeare was largely indebted to Holinshed, whole pages in "Macbeth," and the character of Wolsey in "Henry VIII.," being almost word for word taken from the " Chronicles."
