Accounts of the conduct of Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, 1704-1742
SARAH, Duchess of Marlborough's self-justifying narrative of her years at Court, An
Account of the Conduct of the Dowager Duchess of Marlborough attracted a considerable
amount of attention at its first publication in 1742, and has since frequently been used
as an historical source. For not only had she been the wife of one of Queen Anne's
chief ministers and the close associate of several others, she was also the intimate for
many years of the Queen herself, and an active figure in Whig politics in her own right.
