The Life of Lord Hamilton

The name Lord Hamilton may either refer to one of these: the great hero, William Hamilton, who distinguished himself at the Battle of Wakefield; or the duke of Hamilton who established the duke’s line of goldsmiths at Waverley Place, London. Alternatively, the name Lord Hamilton might have been given to him by his patron, Sir Walter Raleigh, who was the first Earl of Shelburne. William Hamilton was born into a poor yeoman family at Stratford-upon-Avon, England. His father died when he was very young, and he was forced to work hard to support his mother and two brothers.

Eventually, he became a loyal and useful soldier, earning the nickname ‘Tally ho!’ He later married Princess Diana, cousin of King Edward, and they had four children. In 911 he was promoted to be the Lord of the Manor, and in that position he achieved great success. When his elder son became king, he elevated Hamilton to become Earl of Bath and Wells.

According to biographer David Ashley, Lord Hamilton was “a man of few words, but with a great memory.” As well as being an experienced fighter pilot, he was also highly skilled as a tactician, negotiator, and statesman. He was particularly effective as a leader of the duke’s forces in the Middle East during the crucial year of the Cold War. By the time of his death in 1979 he had become the marquess of Bath and Wells, and is believed to have held the title, duke of Hamilton since that date.

According to historical records, on this day in November, 1979, Hamilton visited the tomb of Queen Elizabeth, where he was present along with the rest of the royal household. After being welcomed by the queen he knelt down before her marble funeral statue. Hamilton said that the duke of Hamilton was very kind and respected her, and that he always thought of her as his queen. He then told the queen that he would be following her example in death, and that he looked forward to celebrating her golden years in her absence. The queen was pleased by this gesture, and promised to meet Hamilton when he arrived back.

Following a brief stopover in Morocco, the party wound up its trip to France, traveling by carriage, as the wind wished to blow harder. They traveled through Switzerland and Germany, stopping off at the Sorbs that June. On november afternoon, as the sun was setting, they stopped at the Chateau de Versailles to dine with the duke and his wife, Princess Elizabeth. Hamilton was so charmed by their gracious hospitality that he declared them to be the most beautiful couple in the world, and expressed the desire that he owed them everything. This statement caused the entire dinner to become very quiet, and they were only interrupted when the duke announced that the princesses were to be married that very day!

After leaving the Chateau de Versailles, the royal party went their separate ways. It was on november that they reached their final destination; the Chateau de Versailles. The duke of Burgundy was being honored for his many achievements, and Hamilton was being honored for his heroism on the battlefield. The whole group of people who had come together in recognition of the duke were: the king of Great Britain, the king of Spain, the duke of Norfolk, and the king of Prussia. All of these men were receiving their awards for their services to their countries during the late eighteen hundreds.

As expected, there were several people present at the ceremony who were dressed in the regalia of their respective countries. This included members of the Royal Household, as well as the bride, the future Queen Elizabeth, her mother and grandmother, the marquess of Arlington, and the entire British royal family. The Queen Mother was a very special person in that she had been present in childhood when her father was prime minister. She was also present at the death of her parent, so this made her one of the most important figures in the whole story.

Some years later, the duke of Norfolk and the first marquess of Arlington visited the bride and the princess. It was on november, following a storm, that the wedding took place. It is said that the duke was extremely kind to the princess, who appreciated the gesture. Several years later, the princess and her son were touring Great Britain, when the duke of Norfolk came along for the visit. He was stopped by the king, who was taking the young princess on tour.
