Gladys Deacon Exhibition

This exhibition details the fascinating life of Gladys Deacon (1881-1977), the second wife of the 9th Duke of Marlborough and her time as Duchess of Marlborough 1921-1934. The exhibition uncovers a treasure trove of new and unseen material providing a rare glimpse into the intriguing world of a woman who followed Consuelo Vanderbilt as wife of the 9th Duke at the age of forty. In her youth, Gladys had lived a Bohemian life in Paris, counting Proust, Rodin and Monet amongst her friends. She was living at Blenheim Palace when the water terraces were built in the 1920s, but was evicted by the Duke in 1933 and became a recluse in her later years.

Gladys was supremely intelligent and mischievous. "I married a house not a man" she said when she finally married the 9th Duke.
