Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll (1629–1685) was a Scottish peer. He was born in 1629 in Dalkeith, Scotland, the son of Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll. In his early life he bore the courtesy title Lord Lorne.
First of the restored title
|9th Earl of Argyll
He became the ninth earl in 1663 (on the earldom's restoration after a dissolution two years earlier following the execution of his father for treason). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in October 1663.
m. 13 May 1650 Canongate Kirk Lady Mary Stewart (Father: 4th Earl of Moray). Issue: 7.
m. 2 1670 widow Lady Anne Mackenzie, Countess of Balcarres (d.1707)
He lost his position on the council, in manoeuvres and prevarications on oath-taking. The hostility of James and others pursued the matter into a court case. As a consequence Argyll was put in trial, on 12 December 1681, before Queensberry and four other judges.
On 22 December the king's letter reached the council; and, questionably, sentence of death as well as of forfeiture was pronounced in Argyll's absence on the 23rd.
His estates were confiscated, and his hereditary jurisdictions assigned to Atholl.
He escaped but was executed on 30 June 1685 A, like his father, on the maiden in Edinburgh. He was later interred in Greyfriars Kirkyard.
Burial: 30 Jun 1685, Kilmun, Argyle, Scotland, Great Britain.
