Born in 1786, by the time she was 15 years old, Harriette Wilson was well on her way to becoming Regency London’s most sought-after courtesan. She counted amongst her conquests the Prince of Wales, the Lord Chancellor, and no less than four future Prime Ministers. There was hardly a young dandy in Mayfair who had not been involved with Harriette, who entranced men with her wit as much as her beauty. But when the Duke of Beaufort put a halt on the payments he had promised her, Harriette decided to avenge herself on the whole pack.
