Not always. But he ignored Cora's opinions, and thinks his bad management wasn't that bad. Also when it was turned out that Mary was heiress of Matthew and became Robert's co-owner of Downton, he was really mean to his own daughter. And often yelling at women like Lady Sybil, Lady Rosamund, and Cora.
Robert is the only character that I hate.
Yes she is not Countess, but I saw some article. And it said that not widow of Earl but mother of Earl demand the title Dowager Countess, and king or queen allowed, they can be called/titled Dowager Countess.
When the time comes, she can be the Dowager Countess of Grantham if she wants and be allowed by the king or queen. Do you think she will demand or won't.
