Consuelo Vanderbilt Balsan (formerly Consuelo Spencer-Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough; born Consuelo Vanderbilt; 2 March 1877 – 6 December 1964) was a member of the prominent American Vanderbilt family. Her marriage to The 9th Duke of Marlborough has become an emblem of the socially advantageous, but loveless, marriages common during the Gilded Age.

    Consuelo, named for her mother Alva’s best friend, Consuelo Yznaga, was brought up in great splendor in the States and abroad. Minnie Stevens [q.v.], also a good friend of Alva, set up the first meeting between the Duke and Consuelo, whose objections to the match were overruled. The Marlboroughs entertained lavishly at Blenheim, where the Prince of Wales was a frequent guest, and played a highly visible part in Edward VII’s coronation.
