There are many parallels between Hornblower and real naval officers of the period, notably Admiral Lord Nelson and also Sir George Cockburn , Lord Cochrane , Sir Edward Pellew , Jeremiah Coghlan , Sir James Gordon , Sir William Hoste , and many others.
The actions of the Royal Navy at the time, documented in official reports, gave much material for Hornblower's fictional adventures.
The name "Horatio" was inspired by the character in William Shakespeare 's Hamlet and chosen also because of its association with contemporary figures such as Nelson.
Forester's original inspiration was an old copy of the Naval Chronicle , which described the effective dates of the Treaty of Ghent. The burdens that this placed on captains far from home led him to a character struggling with the stresses of a "man alone".
Frederick Marryat has been identified as "the father of the seafaring adventure novel from which all others followed, from C.
Forester's Horatio Hornblower to Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin"  Hornblower and the eponymous protagonist of Marryat's Peter Simple both start their career rather unpromisingly and without influential friends, but advance themselves through hard work, honesty and bravery.
Both fight in duels before their careers have properly even started and both are taken prisoners early in their careers, but escape in extraordinary fashion.
Hornblower is courageous, intelligent, and a skilled seaman, but he is also burdened by his intense reserve, introspection, and self-doubt, and is described as "unhappy and lonely".
Despite numerous personal feats of extraordinary skill and cunning, he belittles his achievements by numerous rationalisations, remembering only his fears.
He consistently ignores or is unaware of the admiration in which he is held by his fellow sailors. He regards himself as cowardly, dishonest, and, at times, disloyal—never crediting his ability to persevere, think rapidly, organise, or cut to the heart of a matter.
His sense of duty, hard work, and drive to succeed make these imagined negative characteristics undetectable by everyone but him and, being introspective, he obsesses over petty failures to reinforce his poor self-image.
His introverted nature continually isolates him from the people around him, including his closest friend William Bush , and his wives never fully understand him.
He is guarded with nearly everyone, unless the matter is the business of discharging his duty as a King's officer, in which case he is clear and decisive.
Hornblower possesses a highly developed sense of duty, though on occasion he is able to set it aside; for example, in Hornblower and the Hotspur , he contrives an escape for his personal steward, who would otherwise have to be hanged for striking a superior officer.
He is philosophically opposed to flogging and capital punishment and is pained when circumstances or the Articles of War force him to impose such sentences.
He suffers from seasickness at the start of his voyages. As a midshipman, he becomes seasick at the sheltered roadstead of Spithead , an embarrassment which haunts him throughout his career.
He is tone-deaf and finds music an incomprehensible irritant in a scene in Hotspur , he is unable to recognise the British national anthem.
A voracious reader, he can discourse on both contemporary and classical literature. His skill at mathematics makes him both an adept navigator and an extremely talented whist player.
He uses his ability at whist to supplement his income during a poverty-stricken period of inactivity in the naval service. Hornblower is born in Kent , the son of a doctor.
He has no inherited wealth or influential connections who can advance his career. In The Happy Return , the first novel published, Hornblower's age is given as 37 in July , implying a birth year of or However, when Forester decided to write about Hornblower's early career in the sixth novel Mr.
Midshipman Hornblower , he made his hero about five years younger, giving his birth date as 4 July the date of the adoption of the United States Declaration of Independence.
This adjustment allows Hornblower to begin his career in wartime. Hornblower's early exploits are many and varied.
He joins the Royal Navy as a midshipman where he is horribly bullied and tries to resolve the matter with a duel. He fends off fire ships which interrupt his failing first examination for promotion to lieutenant.
During his captivity, he acquires a fluent knowledge of both Galician and Spanish , which proves highly useful in several further adventures, and is finally confirmed as a commissioned lieutenant.
He leads a daring rescue of Spanish civilians from a shipwreck under extremely hazardous conditions, which leads to his being picked up by a British warship patrolling offshore; but since he had given his Spanish captors his parole that he would not escape, he insists upon being returned to captivity.
The Spanish, admiring his sense of honour, release him in recognition of his "courage and self-sacrifice in saving life at the peril of [his] own".
As a junior lieutenant, he serves in HMS Renown under Captain Sawyer, whose bouts of paranoia on a mission to the Caribbean strain discipline to breaking point.
It is on this voyage that he begins his long friendship with William Bush , at the time his senior in rank.
Due to his exploits, Hornblower is made commander , but his promotion is not confirmed when he returns to England following the announcement of the Peace of Amiens , causing him great financial distress: he has to make up the difference between a commander's pay and a lieutenant's, all from his half pay while inactive.
He is forced to resort to playing whist with admirals and other senior figures in an officers' club for a modest stipend; all wins and losses are his responsibility.
Fortunately, his skill at whist is up to the task. Before sailing, he marries Maria, the daughter of his landlady, despite his doubts about the match.
Maria dotes upon the irritable Hornblower in ways that he finds vexing; she knows little of the sea, and annoys him both with her ignorance and hero-worship of him, which clashes with his eternally low self-image.
Despite this unfortunate beginning, however, he warms to her over the course of several books, and becomes a good though not perfect husband to her and father to their two children, also named Horatio and Maria.
After gruelling service during the blockade of Brest aboard Hotspur , he is promised a momentous promotion to post captain by Commander-in-Chief William Cornwallis and is recalled to England.
Once there, he meets the Secretary of the Admiralty and the rank is conferred when Hornblower agrees to take part in a dangerous clandestine operation that eventually leads to the resounding British victory at Trafalgar.
Following this exploit, Hornblower is ordered by the Admiralty to organise Nelson's funeral procession along the River Thames and has to deal with the near-sinking of the barge conveying the hero's coffin.
Later, after being given command of HMS Atropos , he is sent on a secret mission to recover gold and silver from a sunken British transport on the bottom of Marmorice Bay within the Ottoman Empire with the aid of pearl divers from Ceylon , narrowly escaping a Turkish warship at the end.
Upon his return to a British-controlled port, after unloading the treasure and refitting his ship, Atropos is given to the King of the Two Sicilies for diplomatic reasons, much to his disappointment.
Returning to England, he finds his two young children dying of smallpox. Their deaths were referred to in the first novel to be published.
Later in the time line, but written of in the first novel , he makes a long, difficult voyage in command of the frigate HMS Lydia round the Horn to the Pacific, where his mission is to support a megalomaniac , El Supremo, in his rebellion against the Spanish.
He captures Natividad , a much more powerful Spanish ship Bush refers to it as a " ship of the line ", although Hornblower believes this is stretching a point , but then has to cede it reluctantly to El Supremo to placate him.
When he finds that the Spanish have switched sides in the interim, he is forced to find and sink the ship he had captured—adding injury to insult, as he had given up a fortune in prize money to maintain the uneasy alliance with the madman.
Hornblower also takes on an important passenger in Panama—Lady Barbara Wellesley, the fictional younger sister of Arthur Wellesley later to become the Duke of Wellington —also Hornblower's future wife and the love of his life.
