November 8, 1831 - November 24, 1891
British diplomat and viceroy of India (1876-80), Edward Lytton also wrote under the pseudonym of Owen Meredith. He was also titled 1st Earl of Lytton, Viscount Knebworth and 2nd Baron Lytton of Knebworth.
He is sometimes confused with his father, Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, by writers unclear on the difference between R. W. Littles Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.), founded in 1866 and William W. Westcotts Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (HOGD), founded in 1887.
There is no record of any occult or rosicrusian interest on his part.
