Death: Apr. 29, 1854
Greater London, England

2nd Earl of Uxbridge and Marquess of Anglesey. General of the 7th Hussars and commander of cavalry in the Battle of Waterloo. His distinguished military career was slightly hindered by the fact that he had eloped with Wellington's sister-in-law. Whilst observing the battle at Waterloo with the Duke he was hit by a cannonball and fell off his horse, The following immortal dialogue was then said to have taken place: Uxbridge: 'By Jove, sir, I have lost a leg' Wellington: 'By Jove, sir, so you have!'
