Short biography
Alice Stopford was born in Kells, County Meath, Ireland, to a family of prominent Church of Ireland clergy. She was educated at home. In 1874, after her father's death, the family moved to London, where she met her future husband John Richard Green, an historian. They married three years later and she became a collaborator in his work. Mrs. Green's first book was Town Life in the Fifteenth Century (1894), followed by Henry II in 1888. In the 1890s, she became interested in Irish history and the Irish nationalist movement, and opposed British colonial policy in South Africa during the Boer Wars. Her best-known book was The Making of Ireland and its Undoing (1908). In 1918, she moved to Dublin, where she was active in political and intellectual circles. She was elected an independent member of the newly-formed Seanad Éireann (Irish Senate) in 1922 and served until her death.
