Winston Churchill By Gabriella Peregrine
Transcript of Winston Churchill By Gabriella Peregrine
Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was born on November 30, 1874 in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, into an aristocratic family. His father, Lord Randolph Churchill, was a prominent politician while his mother, Lady Randolph Churchill, was the daughter of an American millionaire. Growing up, he did not have a close relationship with either of his parents and was primarily raised by nannies. He was especially close to his nanny, Elizabeth Ann Everest, who he considered his friend and confidante.
