Philip Guedalla (March 12, 1889 December 16, 1944) was a British barrister, and a popular historical and travel writer and biographer.

Historians repeat each other." He also was the originator of a now-common theory on Henry James, writing that "The work of Henry James has always seemed divisible by a simple dynastic arrangement into three reigns: James I, James II, and the Old Pretender".
