More importantly, there were mistakes - for example, the Author stated that when Nelson first met his wife (Frances Nisbet) she was a 17 year old widow with a 3 year old son. A quick check on Wikipedia proved this to be obviously incorrect. Then Josiah Nisbet was referred to as Nelson’s son in law whereas he was his stepson. At this point I lost faith in the accuracy of the book, but perhaps Robert Southey was not very interested in the private part of Nelson’s life, and hopefully the naval information was more accurate.
I am still in awe at Nelson’s prowess at sea and as a Leader, but his treatment of his wife once Lady Hamilton was on the scene is not impressive, so I have to confess to having gone off him a bit !
