Sir Henry William Lucy JP, (5 December 1842– 20 February 1924) was one of the most famous English political journalists of the Victorian era. He was widely known on both sides of the Atlantic. Known as serious commentator of parliamentary affairs, he was also an accomplished humorist, and a parliamentary sketch-writer; acknowledged as the first great lobby correspondent.

The mixed perceptions of his real personality have been left to modern biographers to decipher in more depth.
