The Lord President of the Council is the fourth of the Great Officers of State of the United Kingdom, ranking below the Lord High Treasurer but above the Lord Privy Seal. The Lord President usually attends and is responsible for presiding over meetings of the Privy Council, presenting business for the monarch's approval.

Although there is a reference to Edmund Dudley serving as 'president of the council' in 1497, in 1529, Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk was appointed that the role and by an Act of Parliament was given the style and precedence of a Great Officer of State (An Act that the President of the King's Counsel shall be associate with the Chancellor and Treasurer of England, and the Keeper of the King's Privy Seal).) Prior to 1679 there were several periods in which the office was left vacant.
