From a childhood of luxury through a series of sensational adulteries to poverty-stricken old age, the Duchess of Argyll's was a life whose most famous event was the notorious Argyll versus Argyll divorce. To many she seemed a monster, her ruthless pursuit of her own interest was combined with sexual voraciousness and an outrageous lifestyle. This is a biography, told in the Duchess's own words via recorded interviews with the author.

Ethel Margaret Campbell, Duchess of Argyll (née Whigham, formerly Sweeny; 1 December 1912 – 25 July 1993) was a British socialite, best remembered for a celebrated divorce case in 1963 from her second husband, the 11th Duke of Argyll, which featured salacious photographs and scandalous stories.
