Ish’bosheth,
 
in Dryden’s satire of Absalom and Achitophel, is meant for Richard Cromwell. His father, Oliver, is called Saul. At the death of Saul, Ishbosheth was acknowledged king by a party, and reigned two years, when he was assassinated. (Part i. 57, 58.)   1
       
“They who, when Saul was dead, without a blow,
Made foolish Ishbosheth the crown forego.”
