Coningsby is a political novel written by Benjamin Disraeli, first published in 1844. It follows the journey of Henry Coningsby, the grandson of the wealthy Lord Monmouth, as he navigates the political world of the early 19th century. After falling in love with Edith Millbank, the daughter of a bitter enemy of Henry's grandfather, he discovers that he has been disinherited. This serves as a central plot point in the novel, as it forces Coningsby to confront the realities of the political and social world and prompts him to seek out new sources of support and influence. As he becomes more involved in the political world, he begins to question the state of the Conservative Party and the actions of the Whig government. He becomes disillusioned with the status quo and becomes an advocate for political reform.
