I'm a big fan of Wellington (Sharpe's Rifle's and the Pennisula Wars are my favorite reading).

Wellington won my eternal admiration for the following:

Wellington was estranged from his wife for most of his life. After his defeat of Napoleon, many young women wanted to share his bed. However, he refused. He said, "If I am to be the Duke of Wellington, I have to act like the Duke of Wellington."

Regards, Ivan
