In fact, Wellington was a notorious philanderer and his relationship with his wife was publicly known to be terrible. The quote about Moore's writing it for Welington and his wife was perpetrated by me - I got it from "Dear Harp Of My Country," by James Flannery. It's an excellent resource for Moore's music (comes with 2 CDs) - but clearly one should not take the history at face value. (I suspected the error when I read a bio of Wellington and further research "case serious doubt" on the fact as well.) Very nice romantic tale - but not true.
