Lieutenant-Colonel the Hon. George Herbert Windsor Windsor-Clive (12 March 1835 – 28 April 1918)[1] was a British Conservative Party politician.

Windsor-Clive was a younger son of the Hon. Robert Henry Clive, grandson of Edward Clive, 1st Earl of Powis, and great-grandson of Robert Clive, 1st Baron Clive ("Clive of India"). His mother was Harriet Windsor, 13th Baroness Windsor, daughter of Other Hickman Windsor, 5th Earl of Plymouth, while Robert Windsor-Clive was his elder brother and Robert Windsor-Clive, 1st Earl of Plymouth, his nephew. He was elected to the House of Commons as Member of Parliament (MP) for Ludlow at a by-election in 1860,[2] a seat he held until he retired from Parliament at the 1885 general election.[3]

Windsor-Clive married the Hon. Gertrude Albertine, daughter of Charles Rodolph Trefusis, 19th Baron Clinton, in 1876. She died in April 1878. Windsor-Clive remained a widower until his death in April 1918, aged 83.
