vol.11: Sir Hudson Lowe, Victim of St Helena

£30.00

Lowe had had ‘a very good war’, keeping his head above water in the allied headquarters in 1813 and triumphantly reporting the news of Napoleon’s first abdication and “appointment” as sovereign of Elba in 1814, before being the liaison officer of the allied forces in Belgium until the arrival of Wellington in 1815. His appointment as Governor of St Helena during Napoleon’s captivity there and knighthood was the brilliant career culmination for an Anglo-Irish working class boy made good!

But St Helena and Napoleon not only changed his life, but also his place in history.  He became the dishonoured of St Helena while “He was more the occasion than the cause of the sad end of Napoleon.”
