Lola Montez

UNCROWNED QUEEN OF BAVARIA

Limerick born Lola Montez, real name Marie Dolores Eliza Rosanna Gilbert , enjoyed success as an exotic dancer and also engaged in liaisons with a number of famous men during her career. Around 1845, King Ludwig of Bavaria, who was smitten by Gilbert’s charms, bestowed upon her the titles of ‘Countess of Lansfeld’ and ‘Baroness Rosenthal’ and this meant that for a time, she was the de facto ruler of Bavaria. However, due to the many rash acts she carried out, she was eventually banished from the kingdom.
