History of Wellington...

Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1 May 1769 – 14 September 1852)

He was a soldier and statesman, and one of the leading military and political figures of 19th-century Britain. His defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 put him in the top rank of Britain's military heroes.

In 2002 he was number 15 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. Wellesley's battle record is exemplary; he ultimately participated in some 60 battles during the course of his military career.

He is regarded as one of the greatest defensive commanders of all time, and many of his tactics and battle plans are still studied in military academies around the world.

He was twice British Prime Minister as part of the Conservative party: from 1828 to 1830 and for a little less than a month in 1834.

Nothing except a battle lost can be half so melancholy as a battle won.
