George Charles Bingham, 3rd Earl of Lucan

(1800-1888), Field Marshal

Sitter in 7 portraits
Impetuous and resentful of authority; commanded the cavalry in the Crimean; distrusted by Lord Raglan and hated by his brother-in-law, Lord Cardigan; this antipathy contributed to the fatal misunderstanding of the order leading to the charge of the light brigade.
