Duke George Villiers
(1592-1628)

1st Duke of Buckingham (from 1623)

Died aged c. 36

George Villiers (/ˈvɪlərz/; 28 August 1592 – 23 August 1628), 1st Duke of Buckingham, KG, was an English courtier, statesman, and patron of the arts. He was a favourite—and possibly a lover—of King James I. Despite a very patchy political and military record, he remained at the height of royal favour for the first three years of the reign of Charles I, until he was assassinated by a disgruntled army officer.
