  1. This site provides historical facts, figures, data, records and reports about the Duke of York's Royal Military School. It is a potpourri, a collection of odds and ends having to do with the school's history including the early history of the institution that was once known as the Royal Military Asylum.
    The Duke of York's Royal Military School was founded in 1801 and opened its doors in August 1803 as a haven to the orphaned children of soldiers who had fallen in the Great War with France that began in 1793 and ended with the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
    The Royal Hibernian Military School (1769 – 1924), Phoenix Park, Dublin, was originally the Hibernian Asylum created by the Hibernian Society, a philanthropic organization founded in Dublin in 1769 following the Seven Years War. The Society petitioned the King for a charter, which was granted. The Society’s aim was to help the orphaned children of soldiers who fell during the war, its services later being extended to the destitute families of soldiers leaving Ireland for overseas service.
