QUEEN VICTORIA (GREAT BRITAIN) - MILITARY APPOINTMENT SIGNED 04/21/1853 CO-SIGNED BY: PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN) - HFSID 144177

 
QUEEN VICTORIA and PRIME MINISTER HENRY JOHN TEMPLE (GREAT BRITAIN)
On the eve of the Crimean War, the Queen commissions William Tyler Stuart a Lieutenant in the 36th Regiment of Foot. Also signed by the Prime Minister. (9x13½)
Military Appointment Signed: "Victoria Reg" meaning "Queen Victoria" and "Palmerston" in brown ink. 1 page, 9x13½. St. James Court, London, England. 1853 April 21. Appointment of William Tyler Stuart as a Lieutenant in the 36th Regiment of Foot, effective March 3, 1853. Two intact paper seals at left edge. QUEEN VICTORIA (1819-1901), the last member of the House of Hanover to reign as a British monarch, ruled the United Kingdom longer than any other monarch before or since (1837-1901). Her 63-year reign endeared her to her subjects, and she gave her name to an era, the Victorian Age. Her husband, Prince Albert, an able political figure himself, was the Queen's close advisor until his death in 1861. The royal pair had nine children - four sons and five daughters. Victoria's reign was celebrated with two jubilees, honoring her 50 and 60 years on the throne. Prime Minister HENRY JOHN TEMPLE of Great Britain (1784-1865), popularly known as Lord Palmerston due to his Irish Peerage title as the 3rd Viscount Palmerston, was Britain's Secretary of State for War (1809-1828), Foreign Secretary (1830-1834, 1835-1841, 1846-1851) and Prime Minister (1855-1858, 1859-1865). He held office almost continuously for nearly half a century from 1807 until his death. Because he held an Irish peerage rather than an English one, he was able to sit in the House of Commons. Disliked by Queen Victoria and often abrasive in dealing with foreign governments - he held a lifelong antipathy to the United States - Palmerston was nevertheless effective in promoting British interests. Although he opposed slavery, Palmerston sympathized with the Confederacy on the grounds that a breakup of the United States would benefit Britain. In October 1853, Britain declared war on Russia, fighting in alliance with France, Sardinia and the Ottoman Empire in the Crimean War (1853-1856), ultimately won by the Allies, but at great cost and with many military blunders (including "the Charge of the Light Brigade"). The 36th Regiment of Foot had a long and distinguished military history, but did not fight in this war. It was sent instead to the West Indies, where many of its soldiers succumbed to a yellow fever epidemic. Multiple folds. Corners lightly worn and creased. Toned. Lightly soiled. Surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
