Cumberland William Augustus

Cumberland, William Augustus, Duke of, second son of George II., was born in 1721, wounded at Dettingen in 1743, and defeated at Fontenoy, in Flanders, by Marshal Saxe in 1745. In 1746 he totally routed the forces of the younger Pretender at Culloden, following up his victory with great cruelty. His disgraceful capitulation at Closter-Seven in 1757 closed his military career. He died at Windsor in 1765.
