  2. Robert Blake was one of the most important military commanders of the Commonwealth of England and one of the most famous English admirals of the 17th century, whose successes have "never been excelled, not even by Nelson" according to one biographer. Blake is recognised as the chief founder of England's naval supremacy, a dominance subsequently inherited by the British Royal Navy into the early 20th century. Despite this, due to deliberate attempts to expunge the Parliamentarians from history following the Restoration, Blake's achievements tend not to receive the full recognition that they deserve.

  5. Robert Blake a.k.a. Robert Sarazin Blake, now more commonly known by his middle name and surname, Sarazin Blake, is an American singer-songwriter hailing from Bellingham, WA. Blake is generally considered a folk musician, though his music incorporates elements of traditional Celtic songwriters, modern punk rock, country, and blues all blended together with a heavy dose of improvisation. This melding of varying genres produces a "speed strumming style" that functions as a backdrop to Blake's narrative style of songwriting. Although Blake also writes songs centered on love and his personal life, his leftist-anarchist politics feature prominently in many of his works. Examples of this can be found in songs such as "Didn't We," "Culture of Resistance," and "Philadelphia;" all of which promote the values of an anti-consumerist and independent spirit. He is known for his extensive touring; often traversing the entire United States and Ireland for much of the year.
