->''"Not badly, considering I was seated between [[{{Jesus}} Jesus Christ]] and [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napoleon]]".''
-->--'''David Lloyd George''' on how he did at the Versailles Peace Conference where he was seated between President UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson and French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau

David Lloyd George, [[KnightFever 1st Earl Lloyd-George of Dwyfor OM PC]] was the only [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welsh]] Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and also the only one to have English as a second language (Welsh being his first language). He was also the last Liberal Prime Minister.

He was a key player in introducing the groundwork for the Welfare State. He was Prime Minister throughout the latter half of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and the first four years of the subsequent peace. In 1918 he was universally popular and promised to make a land "fit for heroes to live in". However his coalition government was roundly unpopular with his own party (who where just under a third of it and by the time it was over the party had wrecked itself as a political force, fading into obscurity and being replaced by Labour).

Lloyd George was also a key player in UsefulNotes/TheIrishQuestion. His time in power saw revolution in Ireland and the eventual negotiations that led to the establishment of the Irish Free State and creating the UK as it is known today. Opinion is divided on how well he dealt with the crisis, but for many years afterwards he was hailed (in Britain) as having solved the question for good. Later historians have tended towards a more critical view.

During the 1930's and 40's, Lloyd George had become something of a [[WhatTheHellHero Nazi sympathizer]], to the point that ''even after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII broke out'' he said that the UK should try to negotiate a truce with Hitler.

He was also infamous as a womaniser, leading to the a famous music hall song called ''Lloyd George Knew My Father'', the joke being that Lloyd George ''was'' the singer's father. Two of his actual children followed him into politics, but moved to different parties after his death: his son Gwilym became a Conservative MP, eventually rising to become Home Secretary in Creator/AnthonyEden's government, while his daughter Megan became a Labour MP.

There was also a [[OlderThanTheyThink scandal about selling peerages during this period]].

!!Tropes associated with David Lloyd George:

* AmericansHateTingle: he was a hated figure in the Soviet Union and still remembered unkindly in Russia as one of the instigators of the Entente Intervention during the [[RedOctober Russian Civil War]].
** He is none too popular in Ireland either as the man who threatened 'immediate and terrible war' to the Irish delegates if they didn't sign his treaty - and of course before that he authorised the Black and Tans.
