Major-General Sir John Hanbury-Williams GCVO KCB CMG (19 October 1859 – 19 October 1946) was a British Army officer, who served as Military Secretary to the Secretary of State for War. During the First World War, he was head of the British military mission with the Russian Stavka with direct access to Tsar Nicholas II. Partly as a result of what he had seen in Russia during the First World War, Hanbury-Williams became a fierce opponent of Bolshevism and was a founding member of the Liberty League which was formed in the United Kingdom after the War with a view to combat the spread of this political creed. In 1934 he appeared as a witness in Princess Irina Alexandrovna of Russia’s famous and successful libel suit against Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures Limited following the release in England of the film Rasputin, the Mad Monk (USA title: Rasputin and the Empress).
