Emma Hamilton

Emma Hamilton

th-4Emma Hamilton was perhaps best known for being the mistress of Lord Horatio Nelson. She was lampooned by the press and decried for her common accent and scandalous love life. However, there was far more to her than the cartoonists of the time would have had you believe. Now her descendants are looking to educate the world about her achievements and influences, including the fashion revolution she inspired, with the Emma Hamilton Society which is due to launch on Emma's birthday - April 26th. You can read more about Emma and her life on the Society's website: http://www.emmahamiltonsociety.co.uk
