When we look back at the Montague history on the Gardens Hotel, the first name that pops up is Christopher Monck, the 2nd Earl of Albemarle. He invested his entire fortune, however, little into an expedition to uncover the sunken treasure. Surprisingly, the journey succeeded; however, Christopher died on the day of the discovery. His wife, the Duchess of Albemarle, kept all the treasure for herself and swore never to remarry unless the Prince of Tartary showed up at her doorstep.

The immoral Duke of Montagu disguised himself as the Prince and therefore obtained the Duchess of Albemarle as his wife and her fortune. The Duke used his wife’s money to establish a vast mansion, Montagu House, in Great Russell Street. Six years after completing the building, a fire destroyed it. The Duke rebuilt the property and spent his life living here until he died in 1709. After that, the property changed hands quite a lot. Until Red Carnation acquired the Montague Hotel in 1996 and they reshaped it as the four-star deluxe establishment that we know today.
