BENJAMIN DISRAELI

In 1867 Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) introduced the Second Reform Bill. It redistributed seats and gave the vote to another million men. However, women still had no right to vote.

Disraeli was a Conservative politician and 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, who was prime minister in 1868, and again from 1874 to 1880. He pursued a vigorous foreign policy of imperialism, buying Britain a major share in the Suez Canal and proclaiming Queen Victoria Empress of India. He became a close friend of Victoria, and showed great diplomatic skill in his conduct of the Congress of Berlin, at which he made peace between Turkey and Russia after war in the Balkans.

Disraeli was also a well-known author of political novels, including Sybil, The Two Nations and Coningsby. He was often known by his nickname of 'Dizzy'.
