Novel by Anthony Trollope, published serially in 1879-80 and in book form in 1880; it is the final volume of the PALLISER NOVELS. Plantagenet Palliser, Duke of Omnium and former prime minister of England, is now a widower. He is concerned that his three children--Lord Silverbridge, Lord Gerald, and Lady Mary--will not uphold the values of their ancient lineage. Though their politics, sense of their place in society, and choice of marital partners all cause him considerable anxiety, the novel ends on an optimistic note.
