George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham KG (28 August 1592-23 August 1628) was the favorite, claimed by some to be the lover, of King James I of England. Despite a very patchy political and military record, he remained at the height of royal favour for the first three years of the reign of Charles I, until he was assassinated by a disgruntled army officer.
