There is no such stroke. The 4 strokes are freestyle (front crawl), breaststroke ("frog kicks" with "ice cream shape" pulls on your front), backstroke (circular arm motions with straight leg kicks on your back), and butterfly (double arms forward with a dolphin kick on your front).

When was the swimming started?

Competitive swimming in Europe started around 1800, mostly using the breaststroke. In 1873 John Arthr Trudgen introduced the trudgen to Western swimming competitions, after copying the front crawl used by Native Americans. Due to a British disregard for splashing, Trudgen employed a scissor kick instead of the front crawl's flutter kick. Swimming was part of the first modern Olympic games in 1896 in Athens. In 1902 Richard Cavill introduced the front crawl to the Western world. In 1908, the world swimming association, Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA), was formed. The butterfly stroke was developed in the 1930s and was at first a breaststroke variant, until it was accepted as a separate style in 1952.

Is butterfly stroke a good all round swimming stroke for exercise?

My favorite all around exercise stroke is front crawl. It really gets the cardiovascular system going and is generally considered to be the stroke that propels you (most people) quickest in the water. The butterfly stroke is actually a bit faster, but only among professionals with very good technique. Good butterfly requires exacting technique that the front crawl doesn't. If you're trying to kick your exercise up a notch, try swimming front crawl and increasing the number of strokes per breath. This will force your body to adapt to working on less oxygen and make your muscles more efficient. This is called hypoxic swimming, and the principle can actually be applied to any swim stroke. Any swim stroke can be performed with any level of effort, and because of this any stroke can give good cardio exercise. Typically, though, the front crawl can be done by a beginner and easily involves a good effort from the body.
