1. What sort of family is Gertrude Bell born into?

Gertrude Bell is born on July 14, 1869, in Washington Hall, County Durham, England. Her parents are Hugh and Mary Shield Bell. The family is a wealthy one whose money comes from a prosperous iron and coal manufacturing business.

2. In what fashion is Bell raised?

Bell is raised by a nanny. She is groomed to be prim and proper and to, one day, become a dutiful wife. This is the fate of all young girls in the Victorian Age in England, regardless of intelligence level or their interests or ambitions.

3. What does the author show Bell's level of comfort to be in the presence of men?

The author shows that Bell is at ease in the company of men. This is probably a result of her extremely close relationship with her father as her mother dies when she is a young child. He remarries several years later, but Bell's relationship with her stepmother is civil, but never close.
