Ahmed Orabi Pasha, Egyptian general and rebel, 1900. Artist: Frederic Villiers

Ahmed Orabi Pasha, Egyptian general and rebel, 1900. Ahmed Orabi was an Egyptian general who rebelled against the rule of the khedive and European domination of Egypt in 1879 in what came to be known as the Orabi Revolt. Fearing that Egypt under Orabi might default on loans and close the Suez Canal, the British invaded in 1883. Orabi was captured after his army was defeated at the Battle of Tel al-Kebir. The khedive sentenced him to death, but under British pressure the sentence was commuted and he was exiled to Ceylon for the rest of his life. Portrait in AM Broadley's How we Defended Arabi and his Friends. A print from The Life and Times of Queen Victoria, by Robert Wilson, Volume IV, Cassell and Company, London, Paris, New York, Melbourne, 1900

Charles Stewart Parnell, 19th century Irish political leader, (1900).Artist: William Lawrence

Charles Stewart Parnell, 19th century Irish political leader, (1900). Parnell (1846-1891) was a supporter of the Irish Land League, which campaigned for land reform and against the administration of estates in Ireland by absentee landlords. He also supported Irish Home Rule, becoming President of the Home Rule Confederation in 1877. He entered Parliament in 1874, and by 1880 was leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party, the MPs of which he organised into a unified, disciplined bloc which exerted great influence on parliamentary politics in the 1880s. In 1888 a Commission was set up by the British government to investigate claims that Parnell was complicit in the murders of Lord Frederick Cavendish and TH Burke, the Chief Secretary and Under-Secretary for Ireland, in Phoenix Park, Dublin, in 1882. In March 1887 The Times had accused Parnell of support for the murderers and letters were subsequently published indicating a more direct involvement in the crime. The Commission vindicated Parnell and the letters were established to be forgeries written by Richard Piggott, a journalist, who committed suicide when their origin became known.

William Edward Forster, 19th century British industrialist and Liberal Party statesman, (1900).Artist: Russell & Sons

William Edward Forster, 19th century British industrialist and Liberal Party statesman, (1900). Forster (1818-1886) was a Quaker and Liberal member of parliament. He helped his father distribute relief to the famine-stricken population in Ireland in 1846, and Ireland was always one of his main concerns. He served as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies and as Vice-president of the Council, with responsibility for education policy. Although strongly supported to become leader of the Liberal party in 1875, Forster decined the nomination. In 1880 Gladstone appointed him Chief Secretary for Ireland.
