One of these gifts was an Egyptian themed dinner service with gilt edges.After the fall of Napoleon the service was recycled to the Duke of Wellington and put on display at Apsley House, where you can see it today.8) Money to burn the Real Housewives of Downton AbbeyWhile Americans have always been good at making money, Europeans are good at spending it.The rich American women who began to marry into the European aristocracy in the late nineteenth century were called ‘dollar princesses’.They included such famous figures as Consuelo Vanderbilt, who married the Duke of Marlborough; she became known as the unhappiest married woman in Britain.The fictional Lady Grantham from Downton Abbey is now perhaps the world’s most famous ‘dollar princess’.9) Boni de Castellane big spender and trendsetterBoni de Castellane was an impoverished French ‘aristo’ who married Anna Gould, department store heiress. He loved nothing more than spending her family money on antiques and big parties.At one wild party the guests walked on nine miles of red carpet, while they were served by Nubian men in turbans walking live panthers.Boni’s American father in law asked why Boni was purchasing so many ‘second hand’ objects that were in fact rare antiques.Boni said: ‘I preferred to exist in a dream world of past splendour, pretty women and interesting people.’.
