A member of the House of Lords and lord-in-waiting to Queen Victoria, Lord Dufferin became a diplomatic attaché during the Vienna Conference following the Crimean War. After numerous diplomatic postings, he entered William Gladstone's government as chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. In June 1872, Lord Dufferin was appointed governor general of Canada, a position which he retained until November of 1878. In 1876, he made plans to preserve the wall of Quebec. Until his retirement from public life in 1895, he was in turn the British ambassador at St. Petersburg, administrator of Egypt, viceroy of India (1884-1888), ambassador to Rome and ambassador to Paris.
