Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, Princess of Mindelheim, Countess of Nellenburg, was an English courtier who rose to be one of the most influential women of her time through her close relationship with Anne, Queen of Great Britain. Sarah's relationship and influence with Princess Anne were widely known, and leading public figures often turned their attentions to her, hoping for favor from Anne. By the time Anne became queen, Sarah’s knowledge of government and intimacy with the...
In 1677, Sarah's brother Ralph died, and she and her sister Frances became co-heirs of the Jennings estates in Hertfordshire and Kent. John chose Sarah over Catherine Sedley, but both John's and Sarah's families disapproved of the match, therefore they married secretly in the win
The early reign of James II was relatively successful; it was not expected that a Catholic king could assert control in a fiercely Protestant, anti-Catholic country. In addition, his daughter and heir was a Protestant. However, when James attempted to reform the national religion
Life for Sarah during the reign of William and Mary was difficult. Although the new king and queen had awarded Sarah's husband the title Earl of Marlborough, Sarah and John enjoyed considerably less favour than they had during the reign of James II. The new Earl of Marlborough ha
In 1702, William III died, and Anne became queen. Anne immediately offered John Churchill a dukedom, which Sarah initially refused. Sarah was concerned that a dukedom would strain the family's finances; a ducal family at the time was expected to show off its rank through lavish entertainments. Anne countered by offering the Marlboroughs a pension of £5,000 a year for life from Parliament, as well as an extra £2,000 a year from the Privy Purse, and they accepted the dukedom. Sarah was ...

In July 1708, the Duke of Marlborough, with his ally Prince Eugene of Savoy, won a great victory at the Battle of Oudenarde. On the way to the thanksgiving service at St Paul's Cathedral, Sarah engaged in a furious argument with Anne about the jewels Anne wore to the service, and
Sarah's last attempt to re-establish her friendship with Anne came in 1710 when they had their final meeting. An account written by Sarah shortly afterwards shows that she pleaded to be given an explanation of why their friendship was at an end, but Anne was unmoved, coldly repea
Sarah and Queen Anne never made up their differences, although one eyewitness claimed to have heard Anne asking whether the Marlboroughs had reached the shore, leading to rumours that she had called them home herself. Queen Anne died on 1 August 1714 at Kensington Palace; the Protestant Whig Privy Councillors had insisted on their right to be present, preventing Henry St. John, the first Viscount Bolingbroke, from declaring for the Pretender, James Francis Edward Stuart. The Marlboroughs returne
John Churchill died at Windsor in 1722, and Sarah arranged a large funeral for him. Their daughter, Henrietta, became duchess in her own right. Sarah became one of the trustees of the Marlborough estate, and she used her business sense to distribute the family fortune, including the income for her daughter Henrietta. Sarah’s personal income was now considerable, and she used the money to invest in land; she believed this would protect her from currency devaluation. The dowager duchess ...

Sarah Churchill nació en Saco (Maine), hija de Arthur y Eleanor Churchill y nieta de un hombre rico y respetado, el Mayor William Phillips. En 1680, cuando contaba ocho años, los wabanaki atacaron Saco. Durante el ataque, Sarah, sus padres y otros cincuenta vecinos se refugiaron en la casa de su abuelo. Los indios la rodearon y trataron de incendiarla. Fallaron en el intento, pero dispararon e hirieron a varios de los colonos del interior, incluyendo al Mayor. El padre de Sarah, temiendo otro ataque, se mudó con su esposa e hijos a Marblehead (Massachusetts). Mientras que el destino de la madre se desconoce, se sabe que su padre Arthur vivió hasta 1710. En 1692 Sarah vivía en Salem con unos parientes, los Ingersoll. Mary Beth Norton, autora de In the Devil's Snare, especula que Sarah, al igual que otras muchachas del grupo de "afligidas" que también presenciaron ataques indios, podría arrastrar un estrés postraumático. En Salem, Sarah era sirvientaen la casa de George Jacobs, Sr...
Cuando estalló la crisis, era amiga de Mary Walcott, prima de Ann Putnam, dos de las principales acusadoras. Al principio las imitó, pero pronto perdió el interés. Cuando los síntomas de "aflicción" de Sarah disminuyeron, las otras muchachas la acusaron de haber firmado en el Libro del Diablo para evitar el tormento. Sarah respondió confesando que su señor, George Jacobs y su nieta, Margaret Jacobs, la obligaron a firmar. De inmediato, se desató una cadena de testimonios contra él. Mercy Lewis lo acusó de interactuar con el diablo. Abigail Williamsacusó a Jacobs de reclutar seis personas para las filas del Diablo: Sarah Churchill, Margaret Jacobs, sus padres y el matrimonio English. Durante el interrogatorio Sarah acusó a su señor de llevar "una vida perversa", vengándose así del abuso físico a la que la sometía. Se decía que Jacobs golpeaba a Sarah con su bastón cuando ella no realizaba las tareas domésticas a su satisfacción. El septuagenario Jacobs proclamó su inocencia e, incréd...
Después de los juicios, Sarah regresó a Maine. En 1709 se casó con un tejedor, Edward Andrews, después de haber sido multados por fornicación prematrimonial. El último registro con su nombre data de 1731.
