Sitter in 69 portraits
Liberal Prime Minister from 1908 to May 1915 and leader of a wartime coalition until outmanoeuvred by Lloyd George in December 1916 and forced to resign, the feud terminally weakening the Liberal Party. An opponent of the enfranchisement of women, Asquith was until 1918 the target of militant suffragettes.
