Cartoon illustrating the rivalry between Disraeli and Gladstone. The election of 1 April 1880 saw the conservative party under Benjamin Disraeli fall to the Liberals, under William Gladstone. They hated each other, a fact noticeable to all, including Queen Victoria. Gladstone stayed from 1880 until 1885 when he resigned and declined the Queen's offer of an Earldom. His 5 years saw an increase in war and bloodshed including the fall of General Gordon in Khartoum in 1885.
