David, 11th Duke of Rutland, and Emma Ellis, naval historian, have teamed up to tell the enthralling story of two generations of David’s ancestors, the Manners family. John Manners, Marquess of Granby, famously led a cavalry charge during the Seven Years War, losing both hat and wig. Loved by his men and idolized by the public, he left two sons whose contrasting fortunes and tragically short lives are documented in the detailed archives held at David’s home, Belvoir Castle.
