But the party has not always a recognised leader. In 1868 Queen Victoria might have sent for Lord Russell, though in fact she sent for Mr Gladstone. This step had, however, been expected, and Mr Gladstone had led the Opposition in the previous Parliament. This case is in fact very little different from that of 1874. The general election of 1880 supplies a better example. Mr Gladstone had resigned his leadership in 1874. Lord Granville led the Liberals in the House of Lords and Lord Harrington was leader in the House of Commons.

In 1851 the Queen decided to send for Lord Stanley; and Lord John Russell and Lord Lansdowne, who were consulted, agreed with the Queen and the Prince Consort that ' Lord Stanley and the Protection Party ought to be appealed to'. 1 Lord Stanley was unable to form a Government, but did so (as Lord Derby) in 1852. The position on his resignation was peculiar, because of the agreement of Whigs and Peelites to serve under Lord Aberdeen.
