Episode Summary

Boughton House
A jewel box set in the Northamptonshire countryside, Boughton has been called the English Versailles--and for good reason. In 1683, the house was inherited by Ralph Montagu, Britain's former ambassador to France and a great admirer of the Bourbon's famous palace outside Paris.
