Henry, Lord Paget, 2nd Earl of Uxbridge and 1st Marquess of Anglesey (1768–1854), had a distinguished military career. He commanded the cavalry at the Retreat to Corunna (1808) and at the Battle of Waterloo (1815), in which he lost a leg. The Prince Regent promptly made him a Marquess, declaring 'that he loved him .... that he was his best officer and his best subject' and at his Coronation Anglesey acted as Lord High Steward.
