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.

Here he is wearing his uniform as Colonel of the 7th Hussars (Light Dragoons) and the Peninsular and Waterloo medals and numerous orders. A replica (or the original in place of the replica) commissioned by Wellington is at Apsley House.
