David Rutland

David Rutland is 11th Duke of Rutland and lives at Belvoir Castle, ancestral home of the Dukes of Rutland in north-eastern Leicestershire. His interest in history began when he was a child growing up in this family home, surrounded by ancestral portraits and possessions which he wished to learn more about. Since inheriting the dukedom in 1999, he has devoted himself to caring for the chattels in Belvoir Castle and exploring the castle archives to produce his first book, Resolution.
