Arthur Wellesley was given the title of Duke of Wellington in 1814 and went on to command his most celebrated campaigns in the Napoleonic Wars, with final victory at Waterloo in 1815. When he returned to Britain he was treated as a hero, formally honoured, and presented with both an estate in Hampshire and a fortune of £400,000. After the Battle of Waterloo, he became Commander in Chief of the army in occupied France until November 1818. Retiring from the battlefield he returned to England and Parliament where he was twice elected Prime Minister.
