Lucretia has gained nothing by helping to ruin Coningsby, for Lord Monmouth, in possession of incriminating love letters, discards her too. Angry and ill, he takes secret refuge at Richmond, where Villebecque urges Coningsby to visit him. Monmouth is pleased with Coningsby's affection for him in spite of his disfavour, and Coningsby is about to be reinstated when Monmouth suddenly dies.

Coningsby and Edith discover their mutual mistakes about each other's matrimonial intentions and resolve to be true to each other. Rigby believes that he will find himself Lord Monmouth's principal legatee in place of Coningsbv, but, though Coningsby has not been reinstated, the heiress proves to be Flora, now revealed as Lord Monmouth's illegitimate daughter.
