About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

These paintings are of Francis I, Emperor of Austria (left) and Alexander I, Emperor of Russia (right). Waterloo was an allied victory, with Dutch, Belgian, and German troops fighting alongside the British. However, the Napoleonic Wars as a whole were fought by a series of coalitions, and the role of Austria and Russia in particular should not be neglected. The inclusion of Sir Thomas Lawrence’s portraits of these two allied rulers in Windsor Castle’s Waterloo Chamber reflects the importance of their part in the struggle.
