The son of an Edinburgh merchant, Hope had a spectacular beginning to his career—at the age of seventeen, he travelled to France to triumph in his first court case and caught the attention of his young king, James VI.

It was the beginning of a life at the heart of the government of Scotland. From James VI and I to Cromwell, from John Knox to Montrose, Lord Advocate Hope was a rock in a fast-changing world. He witnessed the reigns of Charles I and Charles II, the founding of the East India Company, affairs of state and affairs of the heart, and matters political and diplomatic.
