This chapter discusses the aftermath of Theobald Wolfe Tone's death. It explains that the French government provided Tone's family with pension and financial support and he was recognised by the French press and his former military colleagues as a distinguished French officer. His son William fulfilled his father's military ambitions and fought in Napoleon Bonaparte's campaigns of 1813–14 and was awarded the Légion d'Honneur after the battle of Leipzig. This chapter also highlights the emergence of the Tone cult in the 1890s and early 1900s.
