Saxonford - Set in the mire of historical accuracy and a pattern of inbreeding, corruption, murder, sex and madness where Dukes and Duchesses, Lords and Ladies vie for royal favour in preserving their lives of prosperity and privilege. Saxonford - is an entertaining saga of the rise, fall and extinction of four eminent aristocratic English families, exploring the advantages and snares of hereditary titles, precedence and lineage from the majesty of Queen Victoria to the lowest form of vacuous viscount. Saxonford - is a story accessible to a modern audience, redolent of the writers Waugh, Wodehouse and Mitford - a decadently inherited diseased cousin to the likes of Brideshead Revisited and Barton Abbey.
