If you don't have an iPad you can still enjoy Wellington's timeline on the link Andy mentions.
Did you know that Wellington's family name was Wesley before it was changed in 1789 to Wellesley?

Yes Sarah, It was his elder brother Richard that changed it, Wellesley I think being an old family name. One of his other brother's chose the name Wellington too.
