James Broun-Ramsay, 1st Marquess of Dalhousie, The Earl of Dalhousie. To his critics, Lord Dalhousie stands out as the destroyer of both the East India Company's financial and military position through reckless policies. His critics also hold that he laid the foundations of the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and led the final transformation of profitable commercial operations in India into a money-losing colonial administration.
