General John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, Prince of Mindelheim, (26 May 1650 16 June 1722), was an English soldier and statesman whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs. Rising from a lowly page at the court of the House of Stuart, he served James, Duke of York, through the 1670s and early 1680s, earning military and political advancement through his courage and diplomatic skill.
