Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, was a very famous military and political figure in the 19th century. He gained notoriety for defeating Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo as well as through his post as Commander-in-Chief of the British Army. The Duke of Wellington had an extensive military career in which he fought in many battles; furthermore, he served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom for two terms. The Duke became involved with Miss Anna Maria Jenkins, a young female evangelist, for several years - the progression of their relationship is reflected in the Duke's letters to Miss Jenkins. The two corresponded from 1833 until the Duke's death in 1852.
