William Pulteney, the second Earl of Bath, is famous in British political history for what reason?

Answer: He is sometimes considered to be the shortest serving Prime Minister in British history. After accepting the seals of office on 10 February 1746, he quickly realised he did not have the support to form a government. He relinquished the post on 12 February, after a mere two days.
