As 'Brideshead Revisited', 'Gosford Park' and 'Downton Abbey' have shown, a fascination about the lives of the wealthy and the powerful is a perennial national pastime. So too is a sense of Schadenfreude when they run into scandal or fall on hard times. This book gives a real insight into the development of the peerage in England, Scotland and Ireland, from Anglo-Saxon and Celtic times up until the present.
