Short biography
Harriette Wilson was a famous courtesan whose lovers included The Prince Regent (the future George IV) and four future Prime Ministers. Sir Walter Scott called her "a smart saucy girl. . . with the manners of a wild schoolboy." Short of funds in middle age, Harriette sold her memoirs after offering to edit out any lovers who would pay her. The Duke of Wellington famously replied, "Publish and be damned!"
