Famous royal mistresses

Lillie Langtry, nicknamed "The Jersey Lily", was a Victorian actress who became the lover of Edward VII. The king met her after deliberately contriving for them to be seated next to each other at a dinner party. Conveniently enough, Langtry's husband happened to be placed at the opposite end of the table.
