0301 Toy Soldiers Set The Duke of Marlborough Mounted

54mm The Marlborough era

Price Code G

John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, Prince of Mindelheim, was an English soldier and statesman whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs through the late 17th and early 18th centuries.


Rising from a lowly page at the court of the House of Stuart, he loyally served James, Duke of York, through the 1670s and early 1680s, earning military and political advancement through his courage and diplomatic skill.

Churchill's role in defeating the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685 helped secure James on the throne, yet just three years later he abandoned his Catholic patron for the Protestant Dutchman, William of Orange.

Honoured for his services at William's coronation with the earldom of Marlborough, he served with further distinction in the early years of the Nine Years' War, but persistent charges of Jacobitism brought about his fall from office and temporary imprisonment in the Tower.

It was not until the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 that Marlborough reached the zenith of his powers and secured his fame and fortune.

All hand painted Toy Soldier sets packed in Red Boxes. Cast in quality white metal, hand painted gloss enamels.

In 1980 the toy soldier range painted in gloss was introduced, sculpted by David Scheinmann, and today by Andrew Stadden and Art IG which from modest beginnings has expanded to a very extensive range covering many popular subjects and periods of military history.
