To The Manner Born

Politics, Passion, Power & Pageantry

June, 1815.

"Have you heard the news?" An elderly society matron whispered to her young ward, one hand pressed to her bosom as if to quell the urge to faint. "Napoleon is defeated! Wellington has won!"

The politicos were awaiting an end to the long and expensive war, hoping to turn their attention to domestic tensions at home.
