When the glamorous Elizabeth Chudleigh, Duchess of Kingston, Countess of Bristol, went on trial at Westminster Hall for bigamy in April 1776, the story drew more attention in society than the American War of Independence. As maid of honor to Augusta, Princess of Wales, Elizabeth led her life in the inner circle of the Hanoverian court, and her exploits consistently delighted and scandalized the public. Who was she, really? Noting Elizabeth's fight to overcome personal tragedy, Catherine Ostler reveals a woman who refused to be defined by society's expectations.
