Former Northern Ireland Secretary Mo Mowlam has left more than £300,000 to her family.
The former Coventry school pupil, who died in August, bequeathed the bulk of her £316,000 estate to husband John Norton and £100,000 to be shared by her six nephews.
Her will was drawn up in 1999, the same year that she was given the Freedom of the City of Coventry in recognition of her role campaigning for her home town.
It is still unclear whether the nephews will receive the money, since the probate document says the sum is payable only if Miss Mowlam was entitled to death-in-service benefits worth £100,000.
Miss Mowlam was voted the nation's favourite politician of all time in September, beating Winston Churchill into second place.
Voters in the ITV This Morning poll said they picked her for her honesty and sense of humour. She took one fifth of the total vote.
Mo grew up in Styvechale and went to Coundon Court Comprehensive where she became head girl. She joined Labour at 18 and studied anthropology at Durham followed by a doctorate in politics in Iowa.
Despite becoming MP for Redcar in 1987, Mo was regularly back in Coventry to see her family and even became involved in a campaign fighting proposed cuts at the Belgrade Theatre.
She stood down as an MP in 2001.
She received a string of tributes from friends including Neil Kinnock and Clare Short during a memorial service at London's Theatre Royal last week.
