Aristocrats: Ep. 4
PROGRAM AIRS ON
Aristocrats tells the story of the Lennox sisters, the royal daughters of Duke Charles Lennox. Growing up privileged was par for the course for these lovely ladies, until they became of age to fall in love. It was at this point the Lennox family began to fall apart at the seams, as each daughter chased various lovers, causing royalty and politics to intermix, and leading to family disruption, bitter jealousies, and even estrangement. Told in a magnificent six-part series, each episode chronicles the troubling commotions within a family that was itself a royal empire, set against some of historyâs most defining moments. Sarah returns to London from Paris, where she has teetered on the edge of adultery. A scandal builds which will threaten to tear the family apart, and allow long buried tensions to erupt. To make matters worse Henry and Carolineâs profligate sons are gambling away vast sums of money. In Ireland Emily has been deeply influenced by new theories of education and has employed an enigmatic and progressive new tutor for her children.
