Rupert spent the next hour interrogating Linda on her knowledge of the various portraits in the Long Gallery and on the details she could easily bring to mind regarding the characters and lives of their subjects. She thought that Rupert the Cavalier had come to Carsingthorpe from an estate close to Derwent Dale itself – somewhere towards the northernmost part of Derbyshire – and that he had fought with both the first Duke Thomas and his son at the Battle of Edge Hill. Rupert the Cavalier had definitely fought with Duke Thomas at the Battle of Naseby, since Lionel Peveril had painted Lord Rupert Returns Duke Thomas to His Family sometime in the late 1860s. Lionel's paintings, while wildly anachronistic, did tend to document reasonably well-established events from the family's history. The painting would be in storage somewhere, unless Rupert's father had hung it in one of the back corridors, since none of the family actually considered Lionel's work worthy of more public display.
