Character description

William Ewart Gladstone (29 December 1809 – 19 May 1898) was a British statesman. In a career lasting over sixty years, he served as Liberal Prime Minister four times, more than any other person (1868-1874, 1880-1885, February-July 1886 and 1892-1894). Gladstone was 84 years old when he resigned for the last time, making him Britain's oldest Prime Minister.
