Today I’ve seen the exhibition Seduction and Celebrity, Emma Hamilton hosted by National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
From sex object to a star Emma Hamilton influenced the European society in every aspects.
She started aged 12, as a housekeeper, brothel worker, mistress and eventually politicians’ confident and society influencer through her skills and talents.
The love between her and Admiral Nelson lasted beyond death.
“It is your sex that make us go forth
None but the brave deserve the fair.
I travelled the world but never yet saw your equal.”
