  • Lieutenant General James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan KCB (16 October 1797 – 28 March 1868) was an officer in the British Army who commanded the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. He led the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. Throughout his life in politics and his long military career he characterised the arrogant and extravagant aristocrat of the period. His progression through the Army was marked by many episodes of extraordinary incompetence, but this can be measured against his generosity to the men under his command and genuine bravery. As a member of the landed aristocracy he had actively and steadfastly opposed any political reform in Britain, but in the last year of his life he relented and came to acknowledge that such reform would bring benefit to all classes of society.

  • Pour les articles homonymes, voir Brudenell (homonymie) et Cardigan (homonymie). James Thomas Brudenell, 7e comte de Cardigan, est un lieutenant-général de l'Empire britannique, né le 16 octobre 1797 à Hambleden et mort le 28 mars 1868 à Deene Park, dans le Northamptonshire. Il est connu pour avoir commandé la charge de la brigade légère lors de la bataille de Balaklava, pendant la guerre de Crimée. Aussi bien dans le domaine politique qu'au sein de l'armée, il devient célèbre pour son arrogance et son extravagance qui font de lui un symbole de l'aristocratie du temps. Sa carrière militaire est marqué par des épisodes d'incompétence notoire, tempérée néanmoins par sa générosité envers ses hommes et son authentique bravoure. En tant que membre de l'aristocratie terrienne, il s'oppose activement à toutes les réformes politiques menées en Grande-Bretagne, mais adopte dans la dernière année de sa vie une position plus modérée en reconnaissant que de tels progrès sociaux peuvent être profitables à l'ensemble de la société britannique.
  • Джеймс Томас Браднелл, 7-й граф Кардиган, или лорд Кардиган (англ. James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan; 16 октября 1797 — 28 марта 1868) — английский генерал. В июне 1854 Кардиган был назначен начальником лёгкой кавалерийской бригады (The Light Brigade), отправленной в Крым. С ней он в сражении при Балаклаве 13 (25) октября произвёл свою знаменитую атаку, весьма блистательную вначале, но закончившуюся полным разгромом его бригады, потерявшей около половины людей. Английский поэт Альфред Теннисон написал об этом очень известное в англоязычных странах стихотворение «Атака бригады лёгкой кавалерии» (англ. The Charge of the Light Brigade). Лорду Кардигану приписывается изобретение вязаного жакета на пуговицах и без воротника, который поддевался под форменный мундир, так называемого свитера «кардиган».
