Once a small hunting lodge, Goodwood became the iconic location for the globally-renowned Festival of Speed and other racing events, while maintaining its traditions of horseracing, foxhunting, cricket, shooting, and golf. The estate is the ancestral residence of the Dukes of Richmond, patrons of the arts and political influencers who were predictably colorful characters. Beginning with Charles II and his mistress Louise de Keroualle, the parents of the first Duke, James Peill vividly captures the character of this family, and the many cameos in this lively history of the dukes and the house include Canaletto, Tsar Alexander, Queen Victoria, and Edward VII.
