Derby's Second Premiership: 1858–1859
This chapter discusses the second premiership of Lord Derby from 1858 to 1859. Derby became Great Britain's prime minister for the second time in February 1858. However, like his first term in office, Derby was confronted with several political problems. His Conservative Party remained a minority in the House of Commons, the country's internal and external relations were in a most delicate and complicated position, and there was armed conflict in India and China, and a crisis with France. The Queen noted that the forbearance and support of some of Derby's opponents would be needed for him to carry on any government.
