Lady Cora

Lady Cora

The Countess of Grantham

As the Countess of Grantham, Cora has seen Downton Abbey through a financial crisis, an inheritance crisis, and the Great War, when she rallied to help Downton Abbey transform into a haven for hundreds of wounded officers. Resilient, supportive, strong and steadfast, Cora is innately more adaptable than her husband, perhaps due to her nationality...or perhaps due to the unmistakable influence of her tradition-averse mother. But are there some crises that even so strong a woman cannot weather?
