Venue History: This spectacular country house has a rich history spanning over 700 years. Once a monastery for Benedictine monks, it became a residence for the children of King Henry VIII, and then passed into the hands of the Dukes and Earls of Bridgewater, finally to become the home of Ashridge Business School.
As civilizations developed, political, military, and economic ties became very important to prominent families and clans. Arranged marriages were a means of cementing ties between families, middle class family businesses, and countries. A man's daughters, who were considered to be his property in those days, provided a means of securing needed alliances with other families. Thus dowries were introduced as a means attracting and securing the most beneficial family alliances possible.
