Dance Information

The Dukedom of Wellington, derived from Wellington in Somerset, is a hereditary title in the senior rank of the Peerage of the United Kingdom.

The first holder of the title was Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington (1769-1852), the noted Irish-born career British Army officer and statesman, and unqualified references to the Duke of Wellington almost always refer to him.
