Introduction

A great naval leader and skilled tactician Horatio Nelson was respected and revered by his men and continues to be loved and admired by our nation. He was a man that defied the conventions of his age and on several occasions disobeyed commands and yet despite these risks he went on to become a national hero.
The great naval captain remains one of the East of England’s most famous sons and the story of his life - his battles, his love affair with Lady Emma Hamilton, his final triumph and death at the Battle of Trafalgar- have been absorbed into the popular consciousness
