Beautiful, romantic and spirited, Pannonica, known as Nica, named after her father’s favorite moth, was born in 1913 to extraordinary, eccentric privilege and a storied history. The Rothschild family had, in only five generations, risen from the ghetto in Frankfurt to stately homes in England. As a child, Nica took her daily walks, dressed in white, with her two sisters and governess around the parkland of the vast house at Tring, Hertfordshire, among kangaroos, giant tortoises, emus and zebras, all part of the exotic menagerie collected by her uncle Walter. As a debutante, she was taught to fly by a saxophonist and introduced to jazz by her brother Victor; she married Baron Jules de Koenigswarter, settled in a château in France and had five children. When World War II broke out, Nica and her five children narrowly escaped back to England, but soon after, she set out to find her husband who was fighting with the Free French Army in Africa, where she helped the war effort by being a decoder, a driver and organizing supplies and equipment. In the early 1950s Nica heard “’Round Midnight” by the jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk and, as if under a powerful spell, abandoned her marriage and moved to New York to find him. She devoted herself to helping Monk and other musicians: she bailed them out of jail, paid their bills, took them to the hospital, even drove them to their gigs, and her convertible Bentley could always be seen parked outside downtown clubs or up in Harlem. Charlie Parker would notoriously die in her apartment in the Stanhope Hotel. But it was Monk who was the love of her life and whom she cared for until his death in 1982. Hannah Rothschild has drawn on archival material and her own interviews in this quest to find out who her great-aunt really was and how she fit into a family that, although passionate about music and entomology, was reactionary in always favoring men over women. Part musical odyssey, part love story, The Baroness is a fascinating portrait of a modern figure ahead of her time who dared to live as she wanted, finally, at the very center of New York’s jazz scene.

In the late 1700's Baron Augustus MacTavish invested in a Fur Trading Company in the Pacific Northwest. After several difficulties arose he sent his young son Baronet Robert MacTavish to New York City to hire a Solicitor and investigate. Robert became embroiled in the society of the city and had an affair with a young prostitute called Miss Julie, and hires a professional trapper to go to the NW in his stead. It worked fine for two years, Then Miss Julie became pregnant, his father found out about his doings, and Robert was ordered home to Scotland. Miss Julie fared poorly walking the streets of NYC after the landlord threw her out for rejecting his advances. In December, her string ran out and she fell into the mud, snow, and manure of a NY street. She whispered the Solicitor's name to the policeman who found her. Two Nuns nursed her back to reasonable health and the lawyer gave her some money. She sets a course across Pennsylvania to find her sister's home in the mountains of NW Va. Three days after arriving there, she gives birth to a baby girl and tells her sister the baby's name is to be Mary Catherine, and dies; and this is her baby's story; how she marries a mountain preacher, raises a family of five children, discovers she is really a Baroness, and quite wealthy. It is also about a backwoods preacher who suddenly finds himself married to a person of royal heritage, and a wealthy one to boot. It tells of the events that befall them, the lives of the children, and how they all have to learn to deal with unexpected fame and fortune.
