There were actually a total of three Prime Ministers throughout the span of World War I.

When the war broke out in July of 1914, the Prime Minister was Joseph Cook, who held this position until September of that same year.

Following Cook was Andrew Fisher, who had been Prime Minister twice in previous years.

Following Fisher, William 'Billy' Morris Hughes became Prime Minister in 1915 and held that title until 1923, several years after the end of the war.
