    You are born in the lap of luxury and prestige, to Philippa Thomasin Jane (née Spencer-Churchill) and Caspar Henry Lazarus FitzGerald, Duke and Duchess of Leinster. Fittingly for a member of your family, you are christened Lady Octavia Adeliza Constance FitzGerald. You are the last child your parents will have, as your mother is worn out after the births of your seven older sisters, the Ladies Cecily Minerva Petronilla, Wilhelmina Eleanor *Nell* Beatrice, Isabel Matilda Josephine, Henrietta Augusta Maude, Marion Christabel Sybil, Annabella Verity Frances, and Lucretia Eulalia Philippa FitzGerald.

    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 Henrietta dies suddenly after a fall from her horse, and you are betrothed to her former intended, a Marquess.

    The next year, you and Frederick Theodore James Douglas, Marquess of Queensberry are married in a lavish ceremony, and you go from a Lady to the Marchioness of Queensberry.

    As a new wife, it is your duty to bear as many heirs are possible. To that end, you become pregnant immediately after the wedding. Unfortunately, you miscarry, and soon become pregnant and give birth to a healthy daughter, Lady Adeliza Sophie Frederica. The next year, you become pregnant again, and give birth to triplets, two boys and a girl: Hugh Alexander Octavius, Viscount Drumlanrig, Lord Philip Theodore Caspar Douglas, and Lord Balthazar James Francis Douglas — all three of whom are born perfectly healthy by some miracle. Two years after marriage, you become pregnant once more, but your daughter, Lady Jane Victoria Keziah Douglas, dies in infancy. You are plunged into deep sadness, but feel happy when you give birth to a son, Lord Clement Stephen Thomas Douglas, but he dies as a baby as well. So does your next daughter, Lady Octavia Frederica Melvina Douglas. The subsequent year, you are frightened by your pregnancy. You give birth to your daughter, Lady Helena Eglantine Mary Douglas prematurely, but she survives miraculously. Under physician's orders, you do not become pregnant for the next two years. After three years, you give birth to a robust son, Lord Octavius Benedict Gabriel Douglas. The tenth year of your marriage, you have your third daughter, Lady Caroline Frances Berengaria Douglas.

    You are now twenty-eight years old, and it has been ten years since you were wed. Little do you know the most important moments in your life are yet to come.
