Lady Ingram is a minor character in Charlotte Bronte's novel "Jane Eyre." She is the wife of Mr. Ingram and the mother of Blanche Ingram, and is depicted as a selfish and shallow woman who is more concerned with wealth and social status than with the well-being of others.
Lady Ingram is introduced early in the novel when Jane is invited to spend time at Mr. Rochester's country home, Thornfield Hall. At the time, Mr. Rochester is courting Blanche Ingram, and Lady Ingram is eager for the match because of Mr. Rochester's wealth and social status. She is rude and dismissive towards Jane, treating her as an inferior because of her lower social class.
Despite her apparent dislike for Jane, Lady Ingram is shown to be a skilled social climber who is willing to use others to further her own ambitions. She encourages her daughter's relationship with Mr. Rochester, hoping that it will lead to an advantageous marriage, and is even willing to overlook Mr. Rochester's questionable past and questionable behavior.
As the novel progresses, Lady Ingram's true nature is further revealed. When Mr. Rochester's past is revealed and he is no longer a desirable marriage prospect, Lady Ingram quickly turns her attention elsewhere, showing her lack of loyalty and genuine affection for her daughter. She is also shown to be petty and jealous, as she becomes angry and resentful when Mr. Rochester begins to show interest in Jane, a woman of lower social standing.
Overall, Lady Ingram is depicted as a selfish and superficial woman who values wealth and social status above all else. She is an example of the corrupting influence of society's obsession with class and status, and serves as a foil to the moral and compassionate characters of the novel, such as Jane and Mr. Rochester.
