James Butler, 2nd Duke of Ormonde was an Irish statesman and soldier, greatly involved in putting down the Monmouth Rebellion, and active in the Nine Years’ War and the War of Spanish Succession. His Jacobite leanings eventually led him to be accused of treason and he went into exile in 1715. In 1712 he was involved in a complex political game in the Netherlands, when, acting on secret orders from the Tory government, he withdrew British troops to Dunkirk, then was obliged to take Bruges and Ghent in order to see his army provisioned when the Dutch withdrew their support in exasperation at his actions.
