iron, h 39.5cm × w 70cm × d 76cm. More details

This campaign bed is thought to have belonged to Prince William of Orange, the future King William II. In the early 19th century many high-ranking officers had similar campaign beds, which also served as chairs and recliners. Prince William fought as a general at the Battle of Waterloo (1815), where he was wounded. This made him a hero in the eyes of many.
