Formed from those elements of the Marquis of Newcastle’s Northern Royalist Army which elected to continue to fight after the crushing defeat at Marston Moor during the next 15 months the Northern Horse swept across much of England and Wales, becoming increasingly notorious in the process. United and reorganised by their commander, the formidable Sir Marmaduke Langdale, the Northern Horse, whilst professing loyalty to the King, increasingly followed their own agenda.
