Warren Hastings (1732-1818), Governor-General of India

Sitter associated with 46 portraits
Hastings was the first Governor-General of India (1772 -85). He transformed the East India Company from a trading organisation into a great military and naval power. He established full-scale British civil administration in India, but his methods led to a trial for corruption at which he was acquitted in 1795.
