Hartletop, Gustavus, Marquis of

"...than whom no English nobleman was more puissant, if broad acres, many castles, high title, and stars and ribbons are any sign of puissance" - The Last Chronicle of Barset

"It satisfied his ambition to be led about as the senior lacquey in his wife's train. He believed himself to be a great man because the world fought for his wife's presence; and considered himself to be distinguished even among the eldest sons of marquises, by the greatness reflected from the parson's daughter whom he had married" - The Small House at Allington
