Wellington was born on May 1st, 1769. This birthday article contains the most important reason why Wellington was superior to Napoleon:


Fluent in French, his conquests included opera singer Giuseppina Grassini who had previously slept with Napoleon. The exiled French Emperor had once stuffed 40,000 francs between the breasts of another lover, Marguerite-Josephine Weimer.

But she also romped with the Duke, declaring him better in bed: "The Duke is stronger!"
No wonder women in southern France welcomed him as a liberator!
