Roger Lockyer (27 November 1927 – 28 October 2017) was an English historian, academic, and writer. He had been educated at Pembroke College, Cambridge. He was a reader in history at Royal Holloway, University of London for many years, specialising in research and writing on the Tudor (1471-1603) and Stuart (1603-1714) periods.
The first edition of this book, covering the period from 1471-1714, was published in 1964, and a second edition appeared in 1985. This work is considered a standard reference for this period in English history, covering the full range of Tudor and Stuart rulers.
On 21 December 2005, Lockyer entered into a civil partnership with Percy Stevens, his life partner of 39 years, at the registry office in Westminster, London. On 26 June 2014 they were among the first couples to legally convert their civil partnership into a marriage.
