Frederick Robinson, most popularly known as the Viscount Goderich, was a British tory who served as Prime Minister from 1827-1828. Succeeding the previous entry on our list, George Canning, Robinson was unable to hold together a coalition of the two main political parties, the Tories and the Whigs, left behind by his predecessor Canning. As such, he was forced to resign after just 144 days in office. He was succeeded by the famous Duke of Wellington.
