He was the first to coin the term the Commonwealth of Nations, which led to the British Empire evolving into such.
Rosebery was a Liberal Imperialist who favoured strong national defence and imperialism abroad and social reform at home, while being solidly anti-socialist. His parents were Scottish and his earldom title was part of the peerage of Scotland. Rosebery married Hannah de Rothschild, the heiress of Mayer Amschel de Rothschild.
