Rebel Daughters book. Two sisters, two rebellions.

Janet Todd's new book looks at these tumultuous events through the lives of the two daughters of the Earl of Kingston .

Janet Todd's new book looks at these tumultuous events through the lives of the two daughters of the Earl of Kingston (or Lord Kingsborough, as he is for the greater part of the narrative), who, in different ways, reacted against what was expected of them as members of the Anglo-Irish élite. Todd's way into the story of these rebel daughters is through her last biographical subject, their crosspatch governess, a skittish and caustic figure whose life briefly intersected with theirs.

Kathryn Hughes enjoys Janet Todd's study of two debutante radicals, Rebel Daughters. Rebel Daughters is an admirable project, of the type that will become increasingly familiar as the boundaries between history and biography continue to break down (there is no history without life, and you cannot tell the story of a life without placing it in history). Kathryn Hughes is writing a biography of Mrs Beeton.

Two sisters, two rebellions. In 1797/8, London and Dublin society was scandalised by the elopment of Mary, daughter of the Earl of Kingston (a leading member of the Irish aristocracy) with her cousin Henry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald was subsequently murdered by the Earl, his own adopted father and the Earl elected to face trial before his peers in the Irish House of Lords. Ireland in 1798 was in the throes of rebellion and the Earls's elder daughter, Margaret, helped to organise a plot by the United Irishman to use the trial as a flashpoint for revolution and an uprising of the United Irishman. The plot was foiled and the rebellion quashed (with cruel ferocity) by her brother George. This is a true story where public and private words collide in a story of love, betrayal, ambition and rebellion.
