John Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess Of Bute
John Patrick Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute
Marquess of Bute
KT KSG KGCHS[1] (12 September 1847 – 9 October 1900) was a landed aristocrat, industrial magnate, antiquarian, scholar, philanthropist, and architectural patron. Succeeding to the marquisate at the age of only six months, his vast inheritance reportedly made him the richest man in the world. His conversion to Catholicism at the age of 21 scandalised Victorian society and led Disraeli to use the Marquess as the basis for the eponymous hero of his novel Lothair. Marrying into one of Britain's most illustrious Catholic families, Bute became one of the leaders of the British Catholic community. His enormous expenditure on building and restoration made him the foremost architectural patron of the 19th century. Bute died at the age of only 53 in 1900 and his heart was buried on the Mount of Olives
