Emma – The life of Lady Hamilton

£9.20

This powerful biography of the colourful and controversial Lady Hamilton is the first to draw on the hitherto unpublished archives of the Bourbon rulers of Naples, where Emma spent the most important years of her life. The court papers of King Ferdinand and Maria Carolina his Queen both complement and add several devastating new perspectives to the conventional picture derived from the well-minded collections of source material on which previous biographers have relied. Here is a very different Emma from the blowsy adventuress who reputedly slept her way from obscurity to become an Ambassador’s wife and the mistress of Nelson
