For a decade, as official mistress, George IV's last great love Elizabeth Conyngham's greed for jewels, her constant pressure on the King to promote her friends and family, and her determined political influence, caused conflict between the monarch, his ministers and the woman many dubbed his 'Vice Queen'. In the first full-length study of their relationship, Tom Ambrose charts the course of the scandalous affair from its early beginnings in the overheated salons of the Brighton Pavilion to the King's declining years at Windsor.
