the Iron Duke
"Железный герцог" [Артур Уэлсли, герцог Веллингтон (1769-1852), победитель Наполеона при Ватерлоо, прозванный так за непреклонность и упорство]

‘You're like the Iron Duke, Auntie,’ she said, ‘except that you don't use the word "damn" quite so often.’ (J. Galsworthy, ‘Maid in Waiting’, ch. IX) — - Ты ведешь себя совсем как Железный Герцог, тетя, - сказала Динни. - Разве что реже чертыхаешься.
