In 1818 he was appointed Governor General of British North America.
the duke had been bitten by a dog; stronger contemporary evidence... supports the view that he received the rabies infection from a fox.

The Tribuna was the first nucleus of the Uffizi Gallery: it is a space conceived and realized to display to the public artworks considered the most precious of the Medici collection.
