In the novel Lord Edgware Dies, The Duke of Merton of Merton Castle is the current love interest of Jane Wilkinson, whom he plans to marry.

He is a young man of about twenty-seven, and is thin and weakly. His hair is thin, and he is going bald at the temples. He had been educated at home, as he was a very delicate child.

He is a staunch Anglo-Catholic, and owns many books on theology, as well as several crucifixes and religious works of art. He would not marry Jane while her husband was still alive, even if she had been able to get a divorce.
