Marquess of Blandford John Churchill (Detail of a portrait by the studio of Sir Godfrey Kneller, ca. 1698)


British peer, the heir apparent to the Dukedom of Marlborough – as the only surviving son of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, an accomplished general, and Sarah Jennings, a close friend of Queen Anne. Blandford died childless in 1703, and upon his father's death in 1722, the dukedom passed to his eldest sister, Lady Henrietta Godolphin (née Churchill).

In early 1703, seventeen-year-old Blandford contracted smallpox, then a deadly disease. Queen Anne dispatched her own personal doctors to attend to him. On Saturday morning, 20 February, Blandford died at King's College, plunging his father into "the greatest sorrow in the world."
