The statue of Sir Charles James Napier was put in the southwest corner of the Trafalgar Square in 1855 in honour of this British general. It was designed by George Cannon Adams and paid for by public. Sir Charles James Napier fought in the Peninsula War against Napoleon and then went to India where he was knighted after winning major battles near Hyderabad. Nowadays, the future of the statue (together with the statue of Major-General Sir Henry Havelock in the southeast corner of the Trafalgar Square) is uncertain. The Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, thinks that these two statuses should be replaced with figures ordinary Londoners and other people would know.
