(18th century – 18th century/19th century)

Junius was a pseudonym for the author of a series of open letters published in the Public Advertiser between 1769 and 1772. The identity of the author is unknown but contemporary and modern scholars suggest it is most likely to be English politician Sir Philip Francis. Junius' letters openly and scandalously criticised certain actions of the government and King George III and discussed elections, freedom of the press, individual liberties and constitutional rights.
