General Lord Alfred Paget, Chief Equerry to Queen Victoria


A somewhat faded half length portrait of the General by Widow & Bridge, showing him seated, wearing the special uniform of a Royal Equerry and holding a sword of mameluke pattern. He had been commissioned in the 7th Light Dragoons in 1832, later serving with the Royal Horse Guards but spending much of his career in royal service acting as Clerk Marshal and Chief Equerry to Queen Victoria. He was born in 1816, the fifth son of the 1st Marquess of Anglesey. The portrait would appear to date from the 1860s.   may3/3
