British aristocrat, landowner, and Conservative Party politician, he was styled Lord Henry Thynne until 1916 and Viscount Weymouth between 1916 and 1946. In the 1920s the tabloid press considered him one of the Bright Young Things, a group of Bohemian young aristocrats and socialites in London.
He was the owner of Longleat House, which has become famous for its lions and other animals. He developed the safari park and opened the house to the public in 1949.
From 1960 onwards he amassed what would become the largest collection of paintings by Adolf Hitler, numbering sixty by 1983. To some extent an admirer of Hitler, the Marquess is quoted as saying “Hitler did a hell of a lot for his country”.
He married twice and had six children. He died on 30 June 1992 at age 87.
