The Duke of Wellington stands before a man (William IV?) who sits at a desk. Following William IV's refusal to create a large number of Whig peers in order to pass the Reform Bill through the House of Lords, Grey and his Whig ministers resigned in 1831 and the King attempted to form a new Tory government with Wellington.
