Battle of Trafalgar
The Battle of Trafalgar was a naval engagement fought by the Royal Navy against the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies, during the War of the Third Coalition of the Napoleonic Wars.
Nelson fell during the battle to a snipers bullet and died shortly after. In order to preserve his body until the ship returned to England it was placed in a barrel of brandy, after the body was recovered from the barrel, it is believed the sailors drank the brandy now mixed with traces of his blood. Hence the name when ordering a brandy, Nelsons Blood. Landlubbers often mistake the drink as rum, but the true drink of Nelsons blood is brandy
