Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle by Fiona Carnarvon p. 27

"In August 1893, three months after Almina's presentation at Court, she encountered Lord Carnarvon when they were both guests at one of Alfred de Rothschild's weekend house parties at Halton House. Sir Alfred was very much in the habit of entertaining in spectacular style."

Almina was Rothschild's illegitimate daughter, which everyone knew. Which meant with her came the Rothschild fortune.
