  • This statue of Viscount Palmerston stands amongst his fellow political leaders of the United Kingdom, Britain and the Commonwealth. A two time Prime Minister, he's probably not the most well known Prime Minister outside of his home country. In addition to his premiership, he served in a number of prominent positions within the government.
