Belvoir Castle: A Thousand Years of Family Art and Architecture
Please note price includes £7.99 shipping.
Belvoir Castle is one of the least known great houses in Britain. Rising like a fairy palace over the plains of the Vale of Belvoir in Leicestershire, and dating back originally to 1067, it is the home of the Duke of Rutland and both one of the finest regency homes in England, and a treasure trove of great paintings and furniture. In this book, the story of the house, its contents and its inhabitants is told for the first time by the Duchess of Rutland. Tracing the history of the 36 generations of the family who have lived there, she conducts the reader on a tour through the exquisitely decorated rooms and the fabulous collections of one of Britain’s great families.
