The following are depictions of the Irish rising which commenced in Ulster on 22 October 1641 amid a constitutional and related economic crisis convulsing Charles I’s multiple monarchy.

There were three plots - a conspiracy by Rory O’More and Conor Maguire in February 1641; a conspiracy of army officers disbanded from Wentworth’s army, subsequently abandoned; and the coalescence of these earlier plots under Sir Phelim O’Neill in August.

The insurrection has traditionally been seen as a revolt against the Ulster plantation.

However, the main conspirators were debt-ridden scions of families who were originally beneficiaries rather than victims of the plantation.

Temple's account of the 1641 rising was perhaps the most lurid of the sensationalist works of propaganda produced in the aftermath of the rising.

The allegation that the rising was a premeditated plot to exterminate the Protestant population, and the wild exaggeration of the numbers killed, helped legitimize the sequestration of Catholic land in the Adventurers’ Act and Cromwellian land settlement.

The frequent republication of the History of the Irish Rebellion - nine times by 1812 - reflected periods of Irish Protestant anxiety.

Conversely, the book was loathed by Irish Catholics and was publicly burned on the orders of the Patriot Parliament of 1689.
