List of famous British leaders with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, timeline and life history.

The British Empire was once upon a time the largest empire in history and for over a century, was the foremost global power. The expansion of the empire began in late 16th century when Queen Elizabeth I granted patents to explorers to claim newer lands for England. King James I continued her legacy and promoted the extensive expansion of the British Empire. However the British began to lose several of the territories starting from the 18th century and the country went through a political upheaval. During this time, a new kind of British leaders began to emerge; Sir Robert Walpole, a British statesman, became the first person to be considered Britain's Prime Minister. Another of the nation’s Prime Ministers, Charles Grey, a member of the Whig Party, backed significant reform of the British government and is regarded as the first modern Prime Minister. Sir Winston Churchill, one of the most popular leaders of the United Kingdom was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist. David Lloyd George, Stanley Baldwin, Margaret Thatcher, and James Callaghan are some others who are regarded as prominent British leaders. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous British leaders.
