This chapter focuses on the Whig's political alliance with the Grenvilles and Grey's political advancement. Grey's presence in the Cabinet of the new ministry, named the ‘Ministry of all the Talents’, was assured on 27 January 1806, when the King accepted, without objection, Grenville's stipulation that Fox must be included in the arrangements. Grey's importance in the Cabinet increased as Fox's fatal illness took hold in the spring and summer of 1806. He was then placed in Fox's old office and the leadership of the Commons by the almost unanimous desire of all his colleagues and friends.

Keywords:   Whig, political alliance, Grenvilles, political advancement, Ministry of all the Talents, Fox
