Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire
Biography of Georgiana Spencer, many times great aunt of Princess Diana, who had a similar life. If we all had biographies written about our ancestors, I wonder if we'd find so many commonalities as this? Anyway, pretty interesting read--amazing how much media has not changed and how they love to smack down people. The conclusion had the most interesting things to say, though--about G's role in shaping political messages and PR, about how she lived in a time where there was less division between masculine and feminine tasks and interests and how shortlived that time was, etc. I think I'd like to learn more about that aspect of the late 18th century.
