Engraved portrait by the well-known engraver William Sharp. Under the engraving, Sharp added that he had engraved Barthres acknowledging and believing he was indeed chosen by the Creator.

Richard Barthres (1757-1824) was an English scholar who was one of the leaders of the believers in the British Israelites Theory. Indeed, the theory was already acknowledged by Cromwell; yet Barthres was the first to develop an orderly doctrine on the subject. Barthres believed he was chosen by G-d to be the prince of the Israelites and lead the people in the land of Israel until Jesus' revelation.
