Rosamond Nina Lehmann was born in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire, as the second daughter of Rudolph Lehmann and his wife Alice Davis, a New Englander/5. Rosamond doesn't need to know anything about Lydgate's feelings, ambitions, or "inward life," because that's not part of the "romance" she has imagined for herself. Part of the reason her marriage is unhappy is because of the romances she has read.

Rosamond Vincy: She is beautiful, shallow and vain. She has high regards for her own charms and does not like Middlemarch. She has high regards for her own charms and does not like Middlemarch. She marries Tertius Lydgate as she believes that he will raise her social status and give her all sorts of joy. The Imperfection of Marriage. Most characters in Middlemarch marry for love rather than obligation, yet marriage still appears negative and unromantic. Marriage and the pursuit of it are central concerns in Middlemarch, but unlike in many novels of the time, marriage is not considered the ultimate source of examples are the failed marriages of Dorothea and Lydgate.

But when Rodger beholds the fair Rosamond, now blossomed into a lovely young woman, he is determined to possess her, to win her love, to make her want him as he wants her. Orphaned at a young age, Rosamond is the royal ward of Eleanor de Montfort, sister of King Henry III. Beautiful and proud, Rosamond is truly a marriage prize. Books detailing the customs and behavior of the aristocracy were published so that the middle class was able to learn and practice the intricacies associated with the etiquette of the upper class. The idea of the nuclear family was increasingly exalted. She consistently pushes for a marriage between Rosamond and Lydgate while she believes.
