Wellington: The Waterloo Years – Lecture

Monday 9th March 2015

To coincide with The Fan Museum exhibition, Waterloo: Life & Times, Robert Evans will give a lecture on the life of Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, with a focus on the period surrounding the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815. Evans will explore both the personal and public image of the Duke as the archetypal hero figure, and will bring to life the extravagant social scene of the period, which revolved around glittering events such as the Duchess of Richmond’s Ball.

Robert Evans is a writer, researcher and lecturer in military history, specialising in the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars. A former employee of both the Guards Museum and The National Army Museum, Robert has also worked at Apsley House, the London residence of the Duke of Wellington.
