Details

The 5th Duke of Portland had led an eccentric life as a recluse, shut up in the cavernous, empty rooms of Welbeck Abbey. In 1897, 20 years after his death, a Mrs Druce made an extraordinary claim that her father-in-law, Thomas Charles Druce, did not die in 1864 and she wanted his coffin opened: if, as rumour had it, Thomas Druce was in fact the 5th Duke, her son was heir to his millions. This book follows the legal contortions of the sensational ‘Druce-Portland case’.
