Queen Victoria with Benjamin Disraeli, Earl of Beaconsfield (1804 - 1881), Prime Minister and novelist. Through his outstanding abilities as a politician and orator, Disraeli became Prime Minister in 1868 and guided the Second Reform Bill through Parliament. His diplomatic triumphs included the Congress of Berlin (June 13 - July 13, 1878), a meeting of the European Great Powers' and the Ottoman Empire's leading statesmen. In the wake of the Russo-Turkish War, 1877–78, the meeting's aim was to reorganize the countries of the Balkan peninsula.
