Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught (1850–1942), here wearing robes of the Order of St John of Jerusalem in the British Realm over the uniform of a Field Marshal, was the third son and seventh child of Queen Victoria. From an early age, the prince was interested in military matters and in 1866 he entered the Royal Military Academy Woolwich. He completed his studies in 1868.
The Duke had a reputation as a straightforward, hard-working soldier, known for his concern for the welfare of his men, with no time for pettiness or insincerity. In 1879 he married Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia (1860–1917). This is a small replica, painted for Captain J. C. Bonnar in 1929, of the portrait exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1927 (no. 593).
