Sarah Churchill (1660-1744), Duchess of Marlborough, was born Sarah Jennings and rose to be one of the most influential women in the whole of British history, largely as a result of her close friendship with Queen Anne.
This came about some time after 1673, when she joined the household of the Duke of York (later to be King James II of England) and befriended his younger daughter; Anne was a few years Sarah's junior.
Close links with the royal family remained; Sarah sought to marry one of her granddaughters to Frederick, Prince of Wales, and remained friendly with the prince and his family even after this plan had failed.

Born Sarah Jennings, she was a childhood friend of Princess Anne.

Churchill, the brilliant general and ancestor of the equally brilliant Sir Winston,is played by John Neville in an admirable performance and his fiery wife, Sarah, by Susan Hampshire in a bravura one.However, all the acting is of the highest order and the political and royal figures of the time are fleshed out admirably.
Take, for example, the maiden Sarah's progressive assertiveness at such a young age; her apparent ambivalence towards her mother; her steadfast refusal to marry for reasons other than love or be "kept" by men in high places.
Consider Churchill's own refusal to marry merely for the sake of bettering his social position; his singular, almost godlike, willingness to serve strictly on his honor when false patronage among courtiers was quite the fashion.

 Contemporary Review: The Marlboroughs: John and Sarah Churchill 1650-1744. - book review
He shows how Churchill was both a great general -- the victor over the French at Blenheim -- and a skilful politician who 'kept in' both with William III and Queen Anne and with the exiled court in France.
The author shows how the couple worked as a team -- Sarah was to become the confidante, scandal said lover, of Queen Anne -- and how through their joint lives we see the history of the English Court and government at the time.
Sarah outlived her husband by some twenty years and saw their magnificent Blenheim Palace finished.

A brilliant new biographer presents an unforgettable portrait of Sarah Churchill, first Duchess of Marlborough (1660-1744), the glamorous and controversial founder of the Spencer-Churchill dynasty that produced both Winston Churchill and Lady Diana Spencer.
Attacked for traits that might have been applauded in a man, Sarah was also capable of inspiring intense love and loyalty, deeply committed to her principles and to living what she believed to be a virtuous life.
Sarah was a compulsive and compelling writer, narrating the major events of her day, with herself often at center stage.

The Churchills themselves (or at least their wives) have at times denounced Blenheim Palace as the "dump" and "that wild, unmercifull house," and with good reason.
Winston Churchill, one of the greatest heroes of the 20th century, was born at Blenheim, the grandson of a duke, and he got his sense of destiny there.
It turned out that the Churchills’ own staff now tell these tales as gleefully as anyone, if only to give the 250,000 or so tourists who troop through each year good value for the $14 price of admission.

John Churchill was a charming, ambitious but impoverished son of an obscure country squire from Devon, who achieved his rise to the top by never quite saying what he thought and appearing to agree with everybody.
With the accession of the Protestant William of Orange to the throne of England, it was typical of John Churchill that he should both endear himself to the new King, and secretly stay firmly in touch with the exiled, Catholic King in France, James II: an historical each-way bet that paid handsome dividends.
But John Churchill was more than merely a smooth-faced time-server: he was also one of the great military commanders of all time, up there with Wellington and Napoleon.
