Benjamin Disraeli Biography
(British Prime Minister)

Benjamin Disraeli is one of the most prominent names in the history of British politics. He was one of the few who paved the way for a great political revolution in his nation and increased the outreach of ‘The Conservative’ party’s visions and objectives. Though he initially struggled to find his place in the ‘House of Commons’, Benjamin took the political circles of his nation by storm after he arrived. After a period of thirty seven years since his arrival, he led his party to a thumping victory, and eventually went on to become the Prime Minister of Britain. Benjamin also has the reputation of being the only Jewish man in the history of Britain to have held the post of the Prime Minister. His leadership abilities got the attention of Queen Victoria, who named Benjamin the ‘Earl of Beaconsfield’, one of the highest political honours awarded to an individual. Disraeli also earned the reputation of being a great writer. He penned his thoughts in the form of a famous political pamphlet called ‘A Vindication of the English Constitution in a Letter to a Noble and Learned Lord by Disraeli the Younger’ and few books such as ‘Young Duke’ and ‘Contarini Fleming’.
