SUBALBUM:  Jane Digby

The first paragraph of her Wikipedia article says a lot, "Jane Elizabeth Digby, Lady Ellenborough (3 April 1807 – 11 August 1881) was an English aristocrat, famed for her remarkable love life and lifestyle. She had four husbands and many lovers, including King Ludwig I of Bavaria, his son King Otto of Greece, statesman Felix zu Schwarzenberg, and Greek general Christodoulos Hatzipetros. She died in Damascus, Syria, as the wife of Arab Sheikh Medjuel el Mezrab, who was 20 years her junior.”

According to her Wikipedia article and her article in thepeerage, she had one child who survived to adulthood by an affair with Felix Prinz von Schwarzenberg and two children who survived to adulthood by her marriage to Baron Karl von Venningen. A child by her first marriage, to Earl of Ellenborough Edward Law, did not survive to adulthood and I cannot find a record of any children from her successful marriage to Sheikh Medjuel el Mezrab. She was mistress several times. including to King Otto I of Greece, husband of Amalie of Oldenburg.
