  2. Churchill’s mother Lady Randolph Churchill went into labour prematurely while visiting her parents-in-law and Winston was born at Blenheim Palace, the home of his grandparents the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough.

Personal Life

  1. Churchill won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 for his lifetime body of work.
  2. Churchill’s mother Lady Randolph (Jennie Jerome) was an American born in Brooklyn, which of course made Winston half American.
