This story started in England 450 years ago when Comtesse Nicole De Lancret, Duchess of Devonshire gave birth to a baby girl named Beatrice Eudora Claire De Lancret. The Duke was pleased when he saw his daughter. Duke Nicholas Charles Benedict De Lancret loved his daughter so much, in fact he can’t live a day without seeing his daughter. One morning, the Duke’s cousin Frank Jacob Bamford arrived with not so pleasing news. He told the Duke and Duchess about an incoming war between 2 countries, between England and Russia. The Duke and Duchess couldn’t help but worry about their offspring. So they left their baby with a woman named Minerva Claxton, dashing but arrogant. She may look pleasing and breathtaking but looks can deceive. So the Duke and Duchess went off to be part of the signing of treaties, leaving there precious child behind.
