Richard Bickerton Pemell Lyons, 1st Viscount Lyons, was an eminent British diplomat. Lyons reached Washington a full two years before the American Civil War. Like many observers, he believed that the dissolution of the United States was a strong possibility. Lyons had been seen as the best appointment to the United States by the British government, but at first, President James Buchanan was unhappy with the appointment, preferring a "first-rate man whose character was known in this country. He was born on 6 April 1817 and died on 5 December 1887.
