Leonard Calvert (1606 – June 9, 1647) was the first Governor of the Province of Maryland. He was the second son of George Calvert, 1st Baron Baltimore, the first proprietor of the Province of Maryland. His elder brother Cecil, who inherited the colony and the title, appointed Leonard governor in his absence.

Leonard Calvert in 1632Edit

Leonard Calvert and his brother Cecil received an urgent summons from Thomas Wentworth in September, 1633. Wentworth informed them that their charter in Maryland was revoked by King Charles, and that the King had sold every English possession in North America to France. Charles had decided on this course of action after obtaining a history book from Grantville and learning about the American Revolution.
