William Miller (1795-1861), army officer, who served in the Peninsular Wars, America, and in the struggle for Chilean independence. He became a close friend of Simón Bolívar and repeatedly distinguished himself in Chile and Peru before returning to Europe in 1826. The Spanish-language publication line on this print suggests that although produced in London it was distributed to capitalise on Miller's celebrity in South America (it was also used to illustrate Miller's 'Memoirs').Miller later returned to Peru and was made British consul-general in the Pacific, dying in Callao where he spent much of his time.
