A revealing portrait of one of the most glamorous, influential, and notorious members of the Spencer family
Intelligent, attractive, and born into wealth, Harriet Spencer, ancestor of Princess Diana, married Frederick, Viscount Duncannon, at the age of nineteen. But it was her affair with Lord Granville Leveson Gower that resulted in the birth of two children and all but consumed Harriet's life.
The first comprehensive biography of Lady Harriet Spencer, "Privilege & Scandal" gives readers an inside look at the British aristocracy during the decadent eighteenth century, while bringing one of the era's most intriguing women to life.
