About this item

Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington (1769–1852), is one of the most honored and decorated military commanders in Britain’s long history. Wellington Honoured offers an outstanding illustrated guide to every medal the Great Duke was awarded by Britain and other countries during his lifetime.
This collection was first commissioned and printed privately under the supervision of an anonymous aide de camp and assistant military secretary in the mid-nineteenth century. Wellington Honoured is an updated version of that original book, The Orders, Batons and Medals Conferred on His Grace The Duke of Wellington. Included are reproductions of forty chromolithographs showing the prestigious accolades that Europe’s grateful allies presented to the duke after Napoleon’s defeat, as well as some of the highest honours bestowed on the Duke, such as Britain’s Most Noble Order of the Garter, Imperial Russia’s Military Order of St George, Spain’s Order of the Golden Fleece and of Merit, and The Royal SicilianMilitary Order of St Ferdinand.
A companion to Wellington Portrayed, this gorgeous book will commemorate the two-hundredth anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, Wellington’s famous victory over Napoleon, making it a fine gift for any military history or medal aficionado.
