Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield

Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield, was a distinguished British statesman, diplomat, writer, and renowned wit during the 18th century. Raised by his grandmother after the deaths of his parents, he pursued education at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, but left prematurely to focus on languages and oration. He embarked on the Grand Tour, immersing himself in the cultural treasures of Classical antiquity and the Renaissance, while establishing connections with European nobility. Upon returning to England, he joined the Whig party and began his political career as a courtier to King George I. With the support of his relative, James Stanhope, he secured a position as Lord of the Bedchamber to the Prince of Wales.
