Duke Of Wellington 2

Arthur Wellesley, The First Duke of Wellington.

Arthur Wellesley was a major character who was the Duke of Wellington from the Sharpe series.

He appeared as himself in the Clash of the Links film series

He is pretty much the same character as he was before, duties wise.


  • For his first two appearances (Sharpe's Rifles and Sharpe's Eagle), he was portrayed by David Troughton who was the son of Patrick Troughton, but when he was not available, he was replaced by Hugh Fraser for Sharpe's Company onwards, also Hugh Fraser was also known for other characters such as Captain Arthur Hastings.
  • In order to make himself resemble the late Arthur Wellesley, Hugh Fraser had a special "Wellington Nose" made for him.
