an English author, playwright, and political pamphleteer. Manley's satirical attacks on the Whigs at one point resulted in payment from the then Prime Minister Robert Harley, 1st Earl of Oxford and Mortimer.

Manley was immediately questioned by the authorities in preparation of a libel case against her.
