Aristocrats: Caroline, Emily, Louisa and Sarah Lennox, 1740-1832
Sisters Caroline, Emily, Louisa and Sarah Lennox were great-grandchildren of Charles II, and their extraordinary lives spanned the period from 1740 to 1832. Caroline eloped with an ambitious politician, Henry Fox; her son, Charles James Fox, was the most celebrated opposition politician of his century. Emily first married the senior peer of Ireland, but after having 19 children she scandalized society by marrying their humble Scottish tutor. Louisa and Sarah led equally tumultuous lives.
