Growing up in a poverty-stricken, fatherless household, Dorothy Jordan overcame her humble beginnings to become the most famous comic actress of her day.
It was while performing on Drury Lane that Dorothy caught the eye of the Duke of Clarence, later to become King William IV.
Her twenty-year relationship with the Duke was one of great happiness and domesticity, producing ten children.
But ultimately, Dorothy's generous nature was her undoing and she was to be cruelly betrayed by the man she loved.
