Fane, Julian Henry Charles

(1827-1870)
   The fifth son of the eleventh earl of Westmorland, born at Florence, educated at Harrow School, Fane graduated M.A. from Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1851. He was a member of the "Cambridge Apostles," an elite intellectual secret society founded in 1820 by George Tomlinson. In 1850 he won the chancellor's medal for English verse for his poem "The Death of Adelaide, Queen Dowager." His article "Heinrich Heine, Poet and Humorist" was included in the first Saturday Review, 3 November 1855. An accomplished musician, he set many of Heine's verses to music. Between 1856 and 1868 he was on diplomatic service in Paris, Russia, Austria and Luxembourg. He never recovered from the premature death of his wife and died a year later. Some of his other publications: A Complete Collection of the English Poems Which Have Obtained the Chancellor's Gold Medal in the University of Cambridge, 1850. Poems, 1852. Poems by Heinrich Heine, Translated by Julian Fane, 1854. Ad Matrem, 1857. Tannhäuser, or the Battle of the Bards, 1861 (under the pseudonym "Neville Temple" with Edward Lytton under the pseudonym "Edward Trevor").
