Roger, the young Tichborne heir-reportedly lost at sea- was all narrowness: long neck, champagne bottle shoulders and hips that were hardly there. He walked like a "frenchman". Not even Roger's mother could tell them apart. Tom Castro declared himself to be the long-lost Roger and headed to London to claim his inheritance. One of the longest running court cases in British judicial history then ensued. A fascinating story. Quantity Available: 1.
