"William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, PC, FRS (15 March 1779 - 24 November 1848), usually addressed as Lord Melbourne, was a British Whig statesman who served as Home Secretary (1830-1834) and Prime Minister (1834 and 1835-1841)." [...]

Julie Peakman writes in her book "The Pleasure's All Mine. A History of Perverse Sex" from 2013 on page 309: "Men regarded as pillars of society, such as Lord Melbourne, Queen Victoria's first prime minister, enjoyed sexually abusing children. He not only beat his wife and mistresses but also took an unhealthy interest in whipping children. His interest was patently sexual: he cut out pictures of children being beaten from a collection of French erotica called Les Dames gallantes [galantes] and sent them to his mistress, Lady Elizabeth Brandon. In return, she sent him pictures of children being flogged for 'reasons of discipline'."
