“The Tichborne Trials were the most controversial court cases of the Victorian age, and two of the longest in English legal history, captivating popular imagination from the Claimant’s arrival in England in 1866 until the case’s end more than eight years later. They involved an aristocratic family, the Tichbornes, and a poor Australian immigrant [Arthur Orton a.k.a. Tomas Castro, a butcher from Wagga Wagga, NSW] who claimed to be one of them in a battle over the Tichborne title and estate.” Ref: NPG (UK).
