Former Prime Minister of Britain Stanley Baldwin; undated. Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley (1867-1947) was a British Conservative politician, who dominated the government in his country between the two world wars. Three times Prime Minister, he is the only one to serve under three different monarchs (George V, Edward VIII and George VI). Baldwin retired in 1937 and was regarded as a popular and successful prime minister, but for the final decade of his life, and for many years afterwards, he was vilified for having presided over high unemployment in the 1930s and as one of the "guilty men" who had tried to appease Adolf Hitler. He died in his sleep in 1947.
