Julia Emily Gordon was an industrious, ambitious and talented amateur artist, like her mother Lady Gordon (née Julia Bennet). Julia Gordon is chiefly remembered as the daughter of Sir James Willoughby Gordon, a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars and, when a child, as one of several claimants to the honour of sitting on the Duke of Wellington’s knee at Brussels on the eve of the battle of Waterloo.
