The late Duke of Grafton, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The late Duke of Grafton, 1844. Portrait of British peer and politician George Henry FitzRoy, 4th Duke of Grafton. Men born to ducal dignity and princely revenues are found, at least, as frequently as others, to be deficient in the intellectual aptitude, no less than in the requisite industry, for practical life. To this rule the subject of the present notice cannot be said to have formed any very striking or brilliant exception. He was a man of respectable talents, but of no very great attainments; the records of Parliament, therefore, contain fewer evidences of his ability as a legislator than of his zeal as a partisan, and his activity as a politician....After a lengthened retirement of nearly twenty years, he has quietly sunk to rest, leaving behind him numerous descendants to perpetuate his honours and enjoy his wealth'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

Peers Spiritual in the House of Lords in 1894, (1901). Creator: Unknown

Peers Spiritual in the House of Lords in 1894, (1901). In the House of Lords of the United Kingdom, the 26 bishops of the established Church of England are known as the The Lords Spiritual. There are also bishops who sit by right of a peerage. Some find it unacceptable that the UK is the only Western democracy to give religious representatives the automatic right to sit in the legislature. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]
