Lord Blake delivered the Romanes Centenary Lecture before the University of Oxford on 10 November 1992. The first Romanes Lecture was given by Gladstone on 24 October 1892. On this centenary occasion it seems appropriate to say something about one of Oxford's greatest alumni and about two other eminent Victorians with whom he had so many dealings - Benjamin Disraeli and the Queen Victoria. He was unhappy with the Queen and hated Disraeli who reciprocated the feeling. She came to adore Disraeli and detest Gladstone who was nevertheless a strong monarchist. The lecture analyzes this triple relationship and shows that party politics were as much involved as personality. It also discusses the role of the Victorian monarchy, some of whose problems, especially in finance and public relations, are of topical interest today.

In the general election of 1 April 1880, the Conservative party under Benjamin Disraeli was crushingly defeated by the Liberals (known as Whigs) - under William Gladstone
