British soldier and statesman, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Source :  Jacques CHANIS

Born: on May 01, 1769 in Dublin, Ireland
Died: on September 14, 1852 in Walmer, Kent, England


Wellesley was born into a wealthy Anglo-Irish aristocratic family in the Kingdom of Ireland as Hon. Arthur Wesley, the third of five surviving sons (fourth otherwise) to The 1st Earl of Mornington and his wife Anne, the eldest daughter of The 1st Viscount Dungannon. He was most likely born at their townhouse, 24 Upper Merrion Street, Dublin, now The Merrion Hotel. His biographers mostly follow the contemporary newspaper evidence in saying he was born 1 May 1769, the day he was baptised. His mother, Anne, Countess of Mornington, recalled in 1815 that he had been born at 6 Merrion Street, Dublin. Other places which have been put forward as the location of his birth include Mornington House (the house which used to be next door) - as his father had asserted, the Dublin packet boat and the mansion in the family estate of Athy (consumed in the fires of 1916) - as the Duke apparently put on his 1851 census return.
