Caption: Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, British general and statesman. Wellington is most famous for commanding the Allied armies that defeated Napoleon's forces at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. He was also twice prime minister of the United Kingdom (1828 to 1830, and briefly in 1834). After Waterloo, Wellington headed the allied army that occupied France. Later, in 1827 and again in 1842, he became commander-in-chief of the British Army. Following his death, he lay in state for two days and was buried in St Paul's Cathedral. Daguerrotype from May 1844, by French photographer Antoine Claudet (1797-1867).
