About The Book
The Duke and Duchess of Beaufort survived the tumultuous and uncertain decades which followed the English civil war by creating a remarkable political partnership. Together they worked to restore their family’s estates and political power base as well as their home, Badminton House in Gloucestershire. They also sought to tame political and religious passions and to bring order and stability to Restoration society, a goal which was shared by many members of the landed classes. This fascinating book uses their story to illuminate the profound cultural changes which took place after 1660. It also brings to life Henry Somerset (1629-1700) and Mary Capel Somerset (1630-1715), two complex and unique individuals. Henry, third Marquis of Worcester and first Duke of Beaufort, was a powerful regional magnate and an active member of Charles II’s Privy Council. The book recounts his activities in public life in England and Wales. It also shows the Duke rebuilding his war-ravaged estates, contesting with his local rivals, and corresponding with his wife. Mary, meanwhile, distinguished herself in the newly emerging science of botany, growing and propagating an astonishing variety of exotic plant
