General Sir Ralph Darling, GCH (1772 – 2 April 1858) was Governor of New South Wales from 1825 to 1831. He is remembered as a tyrant, accused of torturing prisoners, and he banned theatrical entertainment. He also built new roads and extended the boundaries of the colony. Many local geographical features are named after him. Darling entered the British Army as an ensign on 15 May 1793 in the 15th Regiment of Foot, and in August 1796 was appointed military secretary to Sir Ralph Abercromby.

When Darling was commissioned as Governor, the Colony’s western boundary - set in 1788 at 135 degrees east longitude - was extended by 6 degrees west to the 129th meridian. To the south, everything beyond Wilson’s Promontory, the southeastern ‘corner’ of the Australian continent, ceased to be under the control of New South Wales and was placed under the authority of the Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land.

Ralph Darling, governor of New South Wales from 1825 to 1835, was a controversial politician whose administration was the subject of a House of Commons inquiry, but Darling was also a great advocate of reform and a leading figure in the turbulent politics of the 19th century. In this, the first biography of Darling, Fletcher draws on previously unused records and documents from England, Mauritius, and New South Wales to repair the reputation of this much-maligned man and to fill a gap in the historic literature.
