Encyclopedia > Aurelian Townsend

Aurelian Townsend (1583?-1643) was an English poet. He is noted for: his membership of the Cavalier poets grouping of friends; the masque Tempe Restored (1632), performed on Shrove Tuesday in which Queen Henrietta Maria and fourteen court ladies appeared; and the verse epistle In answer of an Elegiacall Letter upon the death of the King of Sweden from Aurelian Townsend of Thomas Carew for which he was indirectly responsible.

Aurelian won this campaign largely through diplomacy; the "Gallic Emperor" Tetricus II was willing to abandon his throne and allow Gaul and Britain to return to the empire, but could not openly submit to Aurelian.
In the fall of 275, Aurelian was in Asia Minor preparing another campaign against the Parthians, who were stirring up trouble on the frontier, when he met his end.
Aurelian's enemies in the Senate briefly succeeded in passing damnatio memoriae on the emperor, but this was reversed before the end of the year and Aurelian, like his predecessor Claudius, was deified.
