This is the story of four 18th-century sisters, Caroline, Emily, Louisa and Sarah Lennox, great-grandchildren of Charles II, whose extraordinary lives spanned the period 1740-1832. Caroline eloped with an ambitious politician, Henry Fox; her son, Charles James Fox, was the most famous opposition politician of his century. Emily first married the senior peer of Ireland, but after having 19 children she scandalized society by marrying their humble Scottish tutor. Louisa and Sarah led equally tumultuous lives.

Pretty dense - there's a lot of information here, but I found myself only able to skim it.
