The Forgotten Prime Minister

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the political activities of Lord Derby after his third term as prime minister of Great Britain in 1868. After February 1868, Derby became the guardian angel of the Conservative government, a venerated presence hovering over the shoulder of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. He continued to provide Disraeli with political advice, especially on the Irish question. However, after Derby's premiership, the Liberal Party started to consider the Conservatives with a view to contingencies.
