Summary Fans of Downton Abbey will enjoy the enthralling true story of Ninth Duke of Rutland who and his involvement in family secrets and aristocratic intrigue in the days before WWI. One of the wealthiest men in Britain, he died alone in a cramped room in the servants' quarters of Belvoir Castle on April 21, 1940, and his son and heir ordered the room, which contained the Rutland family archives, sealed. Sixty years later, Catherine Bailey became the first historian given access. What she discovered was a mystery: the Duke had painstakingly erased three periods of his life from all family records-but why? As Bailey uncovers the answers, she also provides an intimate portrait of the very top of British society in the turbulent days leading up to World War I"-- Provided by publisher.
