Horatio Nelson was born on 29 September 1758 in Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk.  His naval career began when he was only 12 years old, and ended with his death at Trafalgar on 21 October 1805.

Nelson became the most popular British hero of his time for his naval victories against France. His Trafalgar signal 'England Expects That Every Man Will Do His Duty' is the most famous (and misquoted) signal in naval history.
