Adriel,
 
in Dryden’s Absalom and Achitophel, is meant for the Earl of Mulgrave.   1
       
“Sharp-judging Adriel, the muses’ friend,
Himself a muse: in Sanbedrim’s debate
True to his prince, but not a slave of state;
Whom David’s love with honours did adorn,
That from his disobedient son were torn.”
       
Part I.
