One of the nineteenth century's most provocative entertainer's, Lola Montez was infamous during her own lifetime for her fiery temper and irresistible charm. Her ambition and propensity to attract powerful men knew no bounds. Married three times, with dozens of lovers including Sam Brannan, the Bohemian temptress led a life full of adventure.  But like so many romantic heroines before and since, she met with a tragic end.
