1871. Elizabeth (Rundle) Charles was a gifted poet, musician, painter, and author. She is the noted writer of The Chronicles of the Schonberg-Cotta Family. This book begins: It was the eve of the Triumph of Germanicus. The Roman camp on the hills above the Campagna was hushed in sleep. A tall fair woman-one of the German captives who were to grace the triumph-had crept to the door of one of the tents, and was gazing with her eyes dreamily fixed on the long reach of Roman Road which stretched before her into the darkness.
