The ghost was a granny who was not what she seemed.
The ship was the ‘Lady Nelson’, one of the Tall Ships whose replica is currently sailing the Seven Seas.
The mystery fell into my lap when my life had crashed and burned and I set out to follow the clues left to me and solve the mystery.
But did I?
It’s a true story that throws light onto a possible legitimate son of King George IV some 200 years ago.
Was the Commander of the ‘Lady Nelson’ him?
That is the question I set out to discover.
Is it him?
If so, and if he was really the legitimate son of George IV, then was he destined for the throne of England instead of Queen Victoria had his identity been known?
The secret of granny’s ghost was a single but significant clue and it has been hidden for 100 years.
It was there for all to see, and to miss.
Only when 3 other clues came to light for the first time did this central clue make sense.
What’s more incredible is that these 3 clues were held by 3 different people who knew nothing of the other 2 clues.
Indeed they had no idea it was a clue to anything.
Then all was revealed when granny’s secret was discovered at her grave in a Melbourne cemetery.
She had died 17 years before she was very much alive being a granny.
Either you’re dead or alive, not both.
Not Granny Fitz.
She was both at the same time.
In saying that I’ve given you her significant big clue.
I reveal all in my book and invite you to share my adventure with me as the mystery unfolds as I chase the clues, and find more, across 5 countries.
And of course, my home country, Australia.
