William Pitt the Younger (1759–1806) was Britain's Prime Minister at the time of the French Revolution.
The second son of Pitt the Elder, Prime Minister from 1766 to 1768, Pitt was the youngest Prime Minister Britain has had to this day, achieving the position at the age of just twenty-four. He held the position twice: once from 1783 to 1801, and then again from 1804 until his death in 1806.
Pitt oversaw Britain's recovery following the American War of Independence. He was an important proponent of the abolition of the slave trade, and a determined enemy of Napoleon.
