David Lloyd George was a prominent British statesman. In his capacity as the Chancellor of the Exchequer, he played an important role in the introduction of several important reforms, which laid the foundations of a modern welfare state. He came up as a highly focussed and energetic Prime Minister of the Coalition Government (1916–22) that he headed during and after the First World War. Being a prominent political figure, he played an important role at the Paris Peace Conference (1919) that had a great impact on the politics of Europe after the defeat of the Central Powers. He became leader of the Liberal Party in the late 1920s, but the party later became divided and grew smaller. As a result of this, he was marginalised and mistrusted in the 1930s. During the Second World War, he was suspected of showing favours to Germany as he did not give a strong support to the war efforts of the incumbent government.
