Benjamin Disraeli

Person  Male  Born 21/12/1804  Died 19/4/1881

Born Theobalds Road which at the time was 6 King's Road. Novelist, e.g. Coningsby, Sybil, and Tancred. Tory Prime Minister in 1868 and 1874 - 1880. 1st Earl of Beaconsfield. Clearly an interesting character: a book review in the Guardian 20 July 2013 said "He entered politics because he was fearful of being imprisoned in a debtors' prison, and therefore sought an MP's immunity from arrest. ... He enjoyed the company of racy older women, and had a famously happy marriage to a rich widow 15 years his senior." Died 19 Curzon Street.
