Sarah Churchill (nee Jenyns (Jennings)), Duchess of Marlborough (1660-1744), Politician and courtier

Sitter associated with 32 portraits
The wife of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, Sarah Jennings was appointed Lady of the Bedchamber in 1683, and became a close friend and adviser to Queen Anne. Vivacious and adept at politicking, she used her position to further the military career of her husband. Eventually in 1711, her self-confident dominance of the Queen provoked a quarrel and estrangement, and both she and the Duke were dismissed from their offices.
