Becoming a baronet at the age of 4 due to the massacre carried out by his grandfather Robert, Alfred was not at ease in the role of nobleman to the point that at the age of 36 he left his wife and son to join a traveling circus in America . At that time Alfred was fascinated by the circus gorilla asking to be able to train him even though he was not prepared for that role. During a stage of the circus in Chicago, Alfred performed a boxing match with the gorilla and was killed by him.[citation needed]
