Download Description
This grandfather of mine is a great prince, thought Coningsby, as musing he stood before a portrait in which he recognised the features of the being from whom he had so recently and so strangely parted. There he stood, Philip Augustus, Marquess of Monmouth, in his robes of estate, with his new coronet on a table near him, a despatch lying at hand that indicated the special mission of high ceremony of which he had been the illustrious envoy, and the garter beneath his knee.

The Merriam-Webster Encylopedia of Literature
(in full Coningsby, or The New Generation) Political novel by Benjamin Disraeli, published in 1844. It is the first novel in Disraeli's trilogy completed by Sybil (1845) and Tancred (1847). Coningsby follows the fortunes of Harry Coningsby, the orphaned grandson of the Marquis of Monmouth. It also traces the waning of the Whigs and the Tories and the nascency of the Conservative party. Above all, Coningsby is a tribute to a political group called "Young England," which hoped for an alliance of the nobility and the common people.
