UK Prime Minister, Second-Shortest Tenure — George Canning

George Canning holds the dubious distinction of being the second-shortest-serving Prime Minister in the United Kingdom’s history. He held the office for 119 days in 1827 from April 12 to August 8 before passing away at the age of 57.

Liz Truss in 2022 became the shortest-serving UK Prime Minister when she resigned on October 20 after just 44 miserable and bumbling days in office.
