] Cassie, the thing that bothered me was the courtship of Georgiana by the Duke of Kent. The Duke at that time was the son of George III and brother to the Prince Regent - and father of Queen Victoria.
] True, he didn't marry until 1818 (I just checked a royal site), but I feel it would be HIGHLY unlikely that he would be courting Georgiana Darcy, as opposed to someone of a higher rank.
I agree with you about the Duke of Kent. I found it odd that HE was inheriting Rosings Park. I guess I assumed that there is more than one family of note in Kent, but maybe not! He was some kind of cross between a frog and a car salesman, huh?
