Following this, Kitchener was made Commander-in-Chief in India (1902—1909), where he reconstructed the badly disorganised Indian army, against the wishes of the bellicose viceroy George Nathaniel Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon of Kedleston, who became a passionate and lifelong enemy.
Kitchener was promoted to Field Marshal in 1910, however, largely due to a Curzon-inspired whispering campaign - he was turned down for the post of Viceroy of India in 1911.
Unusually, provision was made for the title to be passed to his brother and nephew, since Kitchener was not married and had no children.
