The Life and Secrets of Almina Carnarvon

A dip into the scandalous life and times of Almina, 5th Countess of Carnarvon, of Tutankhamun fame, and Downton Abbey, wife of the man who discovered the famous buried treasures of the Boy King


The biographer of overlooked British aristocrats William Cross, FSA Scot, dips into the life and times of Almina, 5th Countess of Carnarvon, of Tutankhamun fame

The illustrated talk is based on Will's best selling biography "The Life and Secrets of of Almina Carnarvon", published in 2011. Lady Almina was the chatelaine of Highclere Castle, Hampshire 1895-1923. Highclere Castle is used as a backdrop to ITV's period romp, Downton Abbey.

Come and hear how the truth is always more unbelievable than the fiction.
