They were the black sheep of aristocracy and this is their story.

From stately homes to the prisons of wartime Britain; from the House of Lords to Edwardian asylums; from the Ritz and the Dorchester to East End dives, Splendour and Squalor tells the fascinating stories of three of Britain’s most illustrious aristocratic dynasties and of the black sheep who brought them down.
