  Charles Hardinge, 1st Baron Hardinge of Penshurst - Biocrawler
Hardinge, the grandson of Henry Hardinge, 1st Viscount Hardinge, a former Governor-General of India, entered the diplomatic service in 1880, and became ambassador to Russia in 1904.
Hardinge was thus raised to the peerage as Baron Hardinge of Penshurst in 1910, and appointed by the Asquith government as Viceroy of India.
Although Hardinge was the target of assassination attempts by Indian nationalists, his tenure generally saw better relations between the British administration and the nationalists, thanks to the implementation of the Morley-Minto Reforms of 1909 and his own admiration for Mohandas Gandhi and criticism of the South African government's anti-Indian immigration policies.

 Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Wellington is often compared to the 1st Duke of Marlborough, with whom he shared many characteristics, chiefly a transition to politics after a highly successful military career.
He came from an established family of noblemen – his father was the 1st Earl of Mornington, his eldest brother, who would inherit his father's Earldom, would be created Marquess Wellesley, and two of his other brothers would be raised to the peerage as Baron Maryborough and Baron Cowley.
Wellesley was educated at Eton from 1781 to 1785, but a lack of success there, combined with a shortage of family funds, led to a move to Brussels in Belgium to receive further education.

 physics - Henry Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey
Henry William Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey (17 May 1768–29 April 1854) was a British military leader and politician, now chiefly remembered for leading the charge of the heavy cavalry against d'Erlon's column during the Battle of Waterloo.
He commanded the cavalry for Sir John Moore's army during the Corunna campaign; this was his last service in the Peninsular War, because his liaison with the wife of Henry Wellesley, afterwards Lord Cowley, made it impossible at that time for him to serve with Wellington.
His only war service from 1809 to 1815 was in the disastrous Walcheren expedition (1809) in which he commanded a division.
