Sitter associated with 48 portraits
Tory statesman. In office almost continuously for thirty years as Foreign Secretary under Addington (1801-3), was Home Secretary under Pitt (1804) and rose to be Prime Minister from 1812-27. Leading an unusually balanced Tory Cabinet, he steered his administration through the Napoleonic Wars and their turbulent aftermath in the 1820s when there was intense popular agitation in Britain.
