Henry Paget (1768-1854), 2nd Earl of Uxbridge and 1st Marquess of Anglesey


RCIN 401453

The Marquess of Anglesey was a hero of the Napoleonic Wars and distinguished himself at the Battle of Waterloo, where he lost a leg – an injury Shee has chosen not to reveal. His portrait was one of a number commissioned by William IV, who wanted the Waterloo Chamber to be a commemoration of the Battle, rather than a celebration of the diplomacy that followed it, as originally intended by George IV.
