David Lloyd George
David George was born of Welsh parents in Manchester, England. His father was a school teacher who died soon after David was born. His mother moved back to Wales near her brother whose influence on him moved David to add his surname of Lloyd to his own.  Raised and educated in Wales as a Welsh speaker, he became a solicitor before entering politics with the Liberal Party.  He became Prime Minister and led Britain during the First World War.  He died in 1945.  (By John Osborne)
