The Derby Cabinet of 1867 as painted by Henry Gales.

Lord Derby became Prime Minister for the third time after the fall of Lord Russell's Liberal government in 1866. His Chancellor of the Exchequer, Benjamin Disraeli, passed the Second Reform Act in 1867, and Derby retired from politics the following year, Disraeli succeeding him as Prime Minister. However, the Conservatives were defeated by the Liberals in the General Election of that year, and the new Liberal leader William Ewart Gladstone formed his first government.
