Major-General Lord Charles Wellesley (16 January 1808 – 9 October 1858) was a British politician, soldier and courtier. He was the second son of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, and Catherine Pakenham. He married Augusta Sophia Anne Pierrepont, daughter of The Hon. Henry Pierrepont, on 9 July 1844. Wellesley represented the Conservative Party as the Member of Parliament (MP) for South Hampshire from 1842 to 1852, and the MP for Windsor from 1852 to 1855. He was also a Chief Equerry and Clerk Marshall to Queen Victoria. His older brother, Arthur Wellesley, 2nd Duke of Wellington, died in 1884 with no heirs and Lord Charles's eldest surviving son, Henry Wellesley, inherited his uncle's dukedom. Lord Charles's second son succeeded his childless brother as Duke of Wellington in 1900.[1]
