A sleuthing reader has found this portrait of the Duke of Wellington, lurking as 'an Unknown Gentleman' in the collection of the National Library of Wales. He writes:

How many men of the early to mid 19th Cent had the Order of the Garter and the Order of the Golden Fleece?

I'll try and have a dig for the artist. It relates to this engraving at the NPG, which is listed as 'unknown artist'.
