Some famous Sagittarius personalities
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill held most of the high offices of state in Great Britain, was a famous sagittarian, was a member of Parliament for more than 60 years, and served twice as prime minister. As Britain’s leader through most of WORLD WAR II, he personified resistance to tyranny. Winston Churchill was born at Blenheim Palace on November 30, 1874.

His mother was Jennie Jerome, an American. Churchill’s childhood was unhappy. He loathed most of his time at school (Harrow) and obstinately refused to learn any Greek beyond the alphabet.
