The Yellow Earl

Almost an emporer, not quite a gentleman


‘One of aristocracy’s greatest eccentrics’ The 5th Earl of Lonsdale, Hugh Lowther was perhaps the most famous English Lord in the world by 1880

Reckless spending,womanising, his love of fast living, horses, hunting and boxing rocked the Edwardian world and won him admirers among risk takers and bon-viveurs ever since. From Eaton to the Circus, to buffalo-hunting and cattle ranching, a friend to both British and international Royalty, a great public benefactor and an unforgettable showman. This biography is a pacey and elegant tribute.
