Dufourspitze is the highest peak of Monte Rosa and is located between Valais, Switzerland, and Italy. It was renamed in 1863 in honour of Guillaume-Henri Dufour, a Swiss general who led the Sonderbund campaign in the 1840s and a co-founder of Red Cross. Prior to 1863, the peak was known as Höchste Spitze.
