Germain, Lord George

The younger brother of the Marquis of Brotherton, who married Mary Lovelace, eventually succeeded to the title and became the father of the real Lord Popenjoy.

"He was a tall, handsome darkbrowed man, silent generally, and almost gloomy, looking, as such men do, as though he were always revolving deep things in his mind, but revolving in truth things not very deep-how far the money would go, and whether it would be possible to get a new pair of carriage-horses for his mother. Birth and culture had given to him a look of intellect greater than he possessed....he was simple, conscientious, absolutely truthful, full of prejudices, and weakminded" - Is He Popenjoy?.
