Wellington at Sorauren, 27 July 1813.

Oil on canvas by Thomas Jones Barker (1815-1882), 1853 (c).

Sorauren was an action in the Battle of the Pyrenees (25 July - 2 August 1813) during the Peninsular War (1808-1814). The French commander in Spain, Marshal Soult, launched an offensive to relieve French forces besieged at Pamplona and San Sebastian. When news of the French advance reached Lieutenant-General Arthur Wellesley, Marquess (later Field Marshal The Duke) of Wellington (1769-1852), he immediately rode south. He assumed command of the British forces at the village of Sorauren near Pamplona.
