336) Winston Churchill

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (1874 – 1965). British politician, army officer, and writer. He was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945, when he led Britain to victory in the Second World War, and again from 1951 to 1955. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as a Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and imperialist, for most of his career he was a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but from 1904 to 1924 was a member of the Liberal Party.
Husband of Clementine Hozier and father, among others, of Diana, Marigold and Sarah.
"As a young boy, Churchill had red hair and talked with a stutter and lisp. While attending Harrow School, he was given the nickname “Copperknob” because of his hair color."
