    • TRIVIA (1)

      • As was shown in this episode, Lord Randolph Churchill resigned from his high British government position as Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1886 because of disputes with other Cabinet ministers over funding for their departments. He fully expected to be recalled into the government but this did not happen and he was a finished man in British politics even though he continued to sit in Parliament. During his final years, his mental and physical state deteriorated considerably probably because he was suffering from the effects of tertiary syphillis. He died on January 24, 1895. Ironically, his eldest son Winston would die on the same day in 1965.
