Alfred Deakin was Australia's second Prime Minister, and one of two Australian Prime Ministers to hold the office three times.

Like his predecessor, Deakin held political office prior to Federation, although in this case in Victoria. He also travelled with Barton to London to oversee the passage of the Commonwealth Constitution Bill through the British parliament.

During Barton's term as Prime Minister, Deakin held the office of Attorney General.
