The Extraordinary Prime-Ministers

Chapter Text

1757 James Waldegrave (Whig)

The Earl Waldegrave is only notable for one thing—he is famous for being the Prime Minister with the shortest time in office, as he was only Prime Minister for a grand total of four days.
During these four days, he tried to form a government, failed, and stepped down from his position as Prime Minister, because he didn’t want to fall out with his friend the king over political matters.
