Sir Robert Peel

Sir Robert Peel is remembered for three things: his creation of the Metropolitan Police, his principal role in the repeal of the Corn Laws and his status as founder of the modern Conservative Party. A key statesman of the early Victorian period, there were many other aspects of his personality and politics which could make the study of his career useful for students of the period. In many ways, he can be seen as the archetypal link figure between the pre- Reform and post-Reform political worlds embodying a mixture of reactionary Toryism and progressivism.
