Read the true story behind Highclere Castle, the inspiration and setting for Julian Fellowes's Emmy Award-winning PBS show.
The character of Lady Cora Crawley is based upon Lady Almina, the 5th Countess of Carnarvon; her dowry helped preserve the ancestral home. Drawing on a rich store of materials from the archives of Highclere Castle, including diaries, letters, and photographs, the current Lady Carnarvon has written a transporting story of this fabled home on the brink of war.
