    Sir William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle (1593-1676) is often called the 'last of the great cavaliers' and he certainly embodies the popular notion of that flamboyant tribe - courageous and cultured, passionate about grand architecture, horses and women, and head of the king's army in the north during the Civil War. Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator of the Historic Royal Palaces, vividly portrays Cavendish's world, and the vital support such a man received from his household and family.
