During a short but incredible life, Lola Montez transformed herself from middle-class British daughter to notorious adventurer, attracting admirers and scandal wherever she went. This highly entertaining biography uncovers the real story of one of the best known women of the Victorian era - a dancer and actress, a power behind thrones, and a mistress across four continents. Bruce Seymour is a lawyer and an independent scholar. He is co-editor of a German collection of the correspondence between Lola Montez and King Ludwig I of Bavaria.
