Francis Burdett Money-Coutts
Francis Burdett Thomas Money-Coutts, 5th Baron Latymer (1852–1923) was a British banker, heir to Coutts & Co. He was a writer and poet. He became the 5th Baron Latymer in 1913 when its 336-year abeyance was terminated in his favour by King George V. He is now remembered mostly for his collaboration in London of the 1890s with Isaac Albéniz on Arthurian operas, for which he wrote the libretto. There was a trilogy, of which one only, Merlin, has ever been staged.
