WILLIAM WYNDHAM GRENVILLE, BARON GRENVILLE (1759-1834), English statesman, youngest son of George Grenville, was born on the 25th of October 1759.
He was doubtless regarded by Pitt as the man best fitted to carry out his policy with reference to France, but in the succeeding years he and his chief were frequently at variance on important questions of foreign policy.
When Pitt returned to power in 1804 Grenville refused to join the ministry unless his political ally, Fox, was also admitted thereto; this was impossible and he remained out of office until February 1806, when just after Pitt's death he became the nominal head of a coalition government.
