    A professional soldier, Monck joined the Royalist troops on the outbreak of the English Civil War. After being taken prisoner by Fairfax at Nantwich in 1644, he was imprisonned in the Tower of London. In 1647 he agreed to become a commander in the Parliamentary army, being appointed adjutant-general and governor of Ulster. His military success continued in Scotland, where Cromwell appointed him commander-in-chief in 1651, before taking part in the Dutch Wars (1652-54). On the death of Cromwell, he entered into communications with the exiled Charles II, whose restoration he facilitated, becoming a Knight of the Garter and Duke of Albermarle in 1660.
