about this item

Political Paramours examines the lives of thirty women throughout history who influenced the world in an unconventional way—as mistresses to powerful men. Far more than mere arm candy, these women had a lasting impact on the political and social dynamics of their time and many remain famous—or infamous—to this day. The book discusses how they came to find themselves in such roles, how they influenced the actions of their “protectors,” and the ways in which they changed the lives, for better of worse, of their famous partners. Finally, by investigating the direct and indirect ways their relationships may have had an outcome on national or world events, the book reveals how these paramours made their mark on history.
