This chapter examines the early life of Theobald Wolfe Tone during the period from 1763 to 1790. Tone was born on June 20, 1763 in Dublin, Ireland and was the eldest son of Peter and Margaret Tone. This chapter describes his early education under Sisson Darling and Reverend William Craig and his college days at the Trinity College where he became a member of the debating society. It also considers the influence of the explosion of the printed word and the debates about Ireland's constitutional position on Tone's political views.
