Andrew Bonar Law was a Conservative MP who rose to power after the fall of David Lloyd George’s coalition government in 1922. The popularity of the party was at an all-time high, and they won a staggering majority at the 1922 general election. After becoming party leader, Bonar Law became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom once the party won the election. Unfortunately, due to his relatively short term in office, Bonar Law did not accomplish much, having spent most of his brief tenure in negotiations with the USA over Britain’s WW1 loans. He resigned 211 days after being made Prime Minister due to severe throat cancer, from which he died later that year.
