Description
From the Gilded Age until World War I, more than 100 American heiresses—including a Vanderbilt, a LaRoche, a Pfizer, and a Whitney—swapped their fortunes for titles, marrying into British peerage. They are all profiled here, in an entertaining little book (originally published in 1989) that Julian Fellowes credited as inspiration for Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham, in his television series Downton Abbey. Filled with a wealth of historical personalities, grand houses, and gossipy anecdotes, the book features sidebars noting the very finest points of etiquette that ruled Victorian and Edwardian society, and satisfying one's curiosity about such things as how much it cost to employ all those footmen at the manor.
