About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 16 Mar 2015

This beautiful golden miniature is a royal gift, from the Prince Regent, the future George IV, to apologise for spoiling a party he attended soon after the Battle of Waterloo. The gold eagle was given to the Prince Regent’s hostess in compensation for the interruption to her party by the arrival of Waterloo despatch, telling of the Allied victory.
