In 1894, Lady Almina, the illegitimate daughter of banking tycoon Alfred de Rothschild, married into the Carnarvon family bringing an enormous fortune with her. Miserable at first, she gradually won over society and her husband with her wit, brave spirit and fabulous dresses. Lady Carnarvon, the 8th Countess, will chart Almina’s life, providing a fascinating insight into what life was really like at Highclere Castle, both upstairs and downstairs.
