Check out the list of notable Eton College alumni. Some of the notable Eton College students are Karl Marx, David Cameron, Christopher Lee, George Orwell and Ian Fleming.

Founded by King Henry VI in 1440, Eton College provides quality education to young boys aged 13-18 years. Located in Eton, Berkshire, near Windsor, this boarding school for boys provides quality education along with high quality sporting and cultural activities. Getting an admission in this independent school is solely based on the student’s knowledge in the all- round activities and does not depend on his financial background. Unlike other colleges and universities, which produce actors, directors, cricketers and astronauts, Eton College has educated 19 Prime Ministers and generations of aristocracy. Robert Walpole, John Stuart, George Grenville, William Pitt the Elder, Frederick North, William Grenville are some of them. Apart from the Prime Ministers, distinguished personalities like Harry Lloyd, who is well known for his role as Viserys Targaryen in the Game of Thrones series made his television debut while studying at the Eton College. Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon, popularly known as Alexander Loudon by the cricket audience worldwide captained the 1st XI, while studying at Eton. Also, Simons Woods, a product of the Eton College is an English actor who starred the Dr Harrison in the BBC1 costume drama series Cranford. Other prominent Etonians who pursued their education in the Eton College include Ivo James Benedict Stourton, a British author and solicitor; Henry Blofeld, cricket commentator and journalist; Robin Dixon, a politician and an Olympic Games gold medal winner. Check out the other few celebrities who studied at the Eton College, Berkshire.
