Belle: The Slave Daughter and the Lord Chief Justice


Contributor(s): Byrne, Paula (Author)
From acclaimed biographer Paula Byrne, the sensational true tale that inspired the major motion picture Belle (May 2014) starring Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson, Emily Watson, Penelope Wilton, and Matthew Goode–a stunning story of the first mixed-race girl introduced to high society England and raised as a lady.  The illegitimate daughter of a captain in the Royal Navy and an enslaved African woman, Dido Belle was sent to live with her great-uncle, the Earl of Mansfield, one of the most powerful men of the time and a leading opponent of slavery.
