Wallis, Duchess of Windsor (previously
Wallis Simpson; previously Wallis Spencer; born Bessie Wallis Warfield;
19 June 1895 or 1896 – 24 April 1986) was an American socialite who
married, as her third husband, Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor.
In 1934, during her second marriage, she allegedly became the mistress of Edward, Prince of Wales. Two years later, after Edward's accession as King, Wallis divorced her second husband and Edward proposed to her.
The King's desire to marry a twice-divorced American with two living ex-husbands and a reputation as an opportunist caused a constitutional crisis in the United Kingdom and the Dominions, which ultimately led to the King's abdication in December 1936 to marry "the woman I love". After the abdication, the former king was created Duke of Windsor by his brother George VI. Edward married Wallis six months later, after which she was formally known as the Duchess of Windsor, without the style "Her Royal Highness". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallis_Simpson

King Henry II (1154 - 1189) had an affair
with young Rosamond de Clifford.
Eleanor’s spies reported the goings-on to her in her castle at
Poitiers, to which she had now retired. This new infatuation
appeared to be growing more
intense. Eleanor decided to act, stealing into England with her
knights, headed for Woodstock, where Henry had his mistress hidden
away. The palace was deep in the forest and its approaches were
constructed like a labyrinth. Alas for Rosamond, a silk thread
had become detached from a needlework chest that the King had given her
for embroidery. Once the Queen discovered it, she was able to
it to the heart of the labyrinth and surprise the young woman.
Eleanor offered Rosamond a choice between a dagger and a cup of
Rosamond apparently chose the poison and died, and that was the end of
her, or so the story goes.
