When people refer to “Sarah Churchill,” they may be talking about either of two people. One is Sarah Churchill, the Duchess of Marlborough, an ancestor of Sir Winston Churchill who went on to become one of the most powerful women in the country during her time as Queen Anne’s favorite. Her existence returned to the modern spotlight when Yorgos Lanthimos’ 2018 period film The Favourite came out. The film examines the personal relationships between Queen Anne and her two favorite subjects (known at the time as “favorites,”), cousins Abigail Masham and Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough.
