James Butler, 2nd Duke of Ormonde (1665-1745)
A half-length portrait of James Butler wearing armour and facing very slightly to the right. Butler succeeded to the Dukedom in 1688 on the eve of the Revolution at which he lent his powerful support to William. In Ireland his vast estates were seized by James II. Ormond fought with William at the Boyne to win them back. In 1702 he accompanied Rooke on the expedition to Cadiz as Commander-in-Chief of the land forces and shared in the destruction of the Franco-Spanish fleet in Vigo Bay. He was Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1703-1707 and from 1710-1713.
