Bute, John Stuart, 3rd earl of

orig. John Stuart

born May 25, 1713, Edinburgh, Scot.
died March 10, 1792, London, Eng.

Scottish-born British statesman.

He was the tutor and constant companion of the future George III; when the latter ascended to the throne, he named Bute secretary of state (1761). As prime minister (1762–63), Bute negotiated the peace ending the Seven Years' War, but, having failed to create a stable administration, he resigned in 1763.
