Peter The Wild Boy entertains.....More information on our "feral" friend on this link, which suggests Peter may have had a rare condition called Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome....
Peter "The Wild Boy" was a feral child whop was "caught" in a German forest and carted off to become a "pet" in the Court of George I in England in 1726. He became a celebrity of sorts and his grave in the churchyard of St Mary’s, Northchurch, near Berkhamsted has now been given a Grade II listing......see all the details on this rather good site:

Nick (older brother) always bankrupted everyone by buying all the stations and utilities and putting hotels on the "scruffy end" of the board........
