Roxton, the Duke of Roxton, Monseigneur: Julian's father. The fifth duke of Roxton is the wealthiest and most powerful Duke in England, and has considerable influence at Louis XV’s court. The French King and the Duke have been friends for four decades. Reserved, some would say icy, Roxton is a nobleman of few words. As Head of his House he is very protective of his family and friends, and in return expects absolute obedience and loyalty. To Deb he is a sinister figure, arrogant and cold. His reputation as a philanderer has stayed with him despite being married to the beautiful and much younger Duchess for 25 years. Unlike some of his peers he has never acknowledged bastard offspring from his various mistresses. Thus he has never confirmed or denied Robert Thesiger as his son, despite his affair with Therese Duras-Valfons being well-known.
