    You are born in the lap of luxury to Thomas and Cecilia Montagu, the Duke and Duchess of Manchester. Fittingly for a member of your esteemed family, you are christened Lady Eleanor Sophie Amabel 'Nell' Montagu. You are the last child your parents will have, as your mother is worn out after the births of your three older sisters, the Ladies Caroline, Rosalind, and Theodora.

    Your childhood passes like that of any other girl of your stature. You live a life of luxury, but a part of you can't help but think that you were meant to do something significant in your life. As a young noblewoman, you were taught that the most important thing you could do was to marry well, although as the youngest daughter, your betrothal is a lower priority than that of your sisters. When you turn seventeen, however, your sister Thea dies suddenly after a fall from her horse, and you are betrothed to her former intended, the Duke of Somerset.

    The next year, you and Joseph Seymour are married in a lavish ceremony, and you become Nell Seymour, Duchess of Somerset.

    As a new wife, it is your duty to bear as many heirs are possible. Over the next twelve years, you bear six children. Your first, Lady Honoria is born months prematurely and dies soon after birth. Heartbreakingly, the same happens three years later, with Elizabeth, your second child. Soon after Elizabeth's death, you become pregnant once more, and although the baby, Claudia, is born early like her sisters, she survives. The very next year, you and your husband are overjoyed to welcome Frederick, Baron Seymour, the much awaited heir. Two years pass, and you give birth to robust twins, Edmund and Matilda, after which your physicians advise you to stop having children for the sake of your own health.
