Sir Robert Peel, 2nd Baronet, FRS (1788 - 1850) was a British Conservative statesman who served twice as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (1834-1835 and 1841-1846) simultaneously serving as Chancellor of the Exchequer (1834-1835) and twice as Home Secretary (1822-1827 and 1828-1830). He is regarded as the father of modern English policing, owing to his founding of the Metropolitan Police Service. Peel was one of the founders of the modern Conservative Party, but famously put the interests of the State above those of his party, and was a consensus politician. The repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846 won him immense prestige in the country, and his death in 1850 caused a national demonstration of sorrow unprecedented since the death of William Pitt in 1806.
