Prostitute
    (circa 1835-July 8, 1886)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Emma Elizabeth Crouch
    Parisian courtesan
    Charged 5,000 francs a night
    Lovers included Prince William of Orange and Napoleon III's half-brother, the Duc de Mornay, and cousin, Prince Napoleon
    She forged a birth certificate to shave seven years off her age.
    She and another courtesan fought a duel with whips over a handsome Serbian prince.
    While they were in seclusion for a week to let the wounds on their faces heal, the prince left France.
    After her ex-lover Alexandre Duval shot himself in her house, she remarked, 'The dirty pig. He fucked up my beautiful rug.'
    She lost a fortune gambling.
    Late in life, she wrote her memoirs, then sent excerpts to her former clients, offering to delete certain passages for money.
    She made a good decision changing her name.
    She had enough musical talent to perform as Cupid in a production of Jacques Offenbach's 'Orpheus in the Underworld.'
    She won a bet that she could serve 'a meat nobody could cut' by being brought out on a silver platter, naked except for a few sprigs of parsley.
