This portrait of John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, was painted when he was a young man. In all the portraits of the 1st Duke you will see he is holding his Baton (stick) of Office, even in the tapestries.

Can you tell what sort of personality he had? At this young age, does he look like the sort of man who could lead armies of men to victory?
