In colonial Kenya a story is told about Lord Egerton who built a magnificent 52-room castle for the love of his life. The Lady’s identity is not known but its believed she was of Austrian origin. The construction took 16 years to complete but he came through a cold reality that the purpose for which the castle was built had fizzled out. The love of his life had declined to marry him not only once but twice. He died a lonely, unloved man.
