Apsley House was the mansion of the Duke of Wellington, who beat Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. The Duke of Wellington was once the most famous man in Europe, and his lavish living quarters are embellished by gifts showered on him by a grateful Europe — including 200 paintings still displayed much as the art-loving duke hung them.
