Henry William Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey (1768-1854), Field Marshal and Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland

Sitter in 25 portraits
As Lord Paget, Anglesey served with great distinction as cavalry commander under Sir John Moore during the retreat to Corunna in 1809, the 'Dunkirk' of the Peninsular war. He was prevented from serving under Wellington's in the Peninsula by a scandal: he ran off with Wellington's brother Henry's wife Lady Charlotte Wellesley. Wellington, though, was happy to accept him as a subordinate for the Waterloo campaign, crushing a colleague who reminded him of Anglesey's reputation with: 'I'll take good care he don't run away with me: I don't care about anyone else.'
