Lord George Murray was born at Huntingtower, near Perth. He joined the 1745 Rising and led the Jacobites to victory at Prestonpans on 21 September 1745. But he and Prince Charles Edward Stuart clashed constantly and it was said that had 'Prince Charles slept during the whole of expedition and allowed Lord George to act for him, he would have found the crown of Great Britain on his head when he awoke.' After the defeat at Culloden in 1746, Lord George escaped to France and spent the rest of his life in exile. This sensitive miniature was drawn by Robert Strange, himself an ardent Jacobite who was present throughout the campaign.
