Main page / Bibliography / Who is who / Empress of Blandings

Empress of Blandings, the black Berkshire sow owned by Lord Emsworth in nine Blandings novels, introduced in Pig-Hoo-o-o-o-ey!. The only pig that has ever won the silver medal in the Fat Pigs class three years in succession at the eighty-seventh, eighty-eighth, and eighty-ninth annual Shropshire Agricultural Show. Resembles a captive balloon with ears and a tail. Her keepers are variously George Cyril Wellbeloved, Pirbright (last heard of in Canada), Edwin Pott (retired into private life after winning a football pool), and Monica Simmons (who elopes with Wilfred Allsop).
