Born in 1765, the daughter of a blacksmith, Emily Lyon became the wife of a nobleman-Ambassador, the friend of royalty and the mistress of Lord Nelson. She was to be known as Emma, Lady Hamilton, famed for her beauty and notorious for her life-style. She began life with nothing but her looks and her kindly nature, acquired respectability, rank, fame and fortune, only to discount all for love and to die in abject poverty.
