About Philip Herbert, 7th Earl of Pembroke
Philip Herbert, 7th Earl of Pembroke, 4th Earl of Montgomery KB (1652/53 – 29 August 1683) was an English nobleman who succeeded to the titles and estates of two earldoms on 8 July 1674 on the death of his brother William Herbert, 6th Earl of Pembroke. A convicted murderer, he has been called "the infamous Earl of Pembroke." Although the murder of Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey, which sparked the Popish Plot, has never been solved, a strong body of opinion points to Pembroke as the killer.
