The National Maritime Museum will be exploring the life of Emma Hamilton — one of the most famous celebrities of her day.

She is now largely remembered as the lady who captured the heart of the nation's greatest hero: Admiral Nelson; but even without that scandal and romance, she was an extraordinary woman in her own right.

Not only did she rise to prominence in a man's world, she did it all from an impoverished start. It was a true rags to riches tale... and back again, because she ended her days facing prison and dying in destitution.

"Emma Hamilton: Seduction and Celebrity" follows her story as an artist's muse, an influential ambassador's wife, and Nelson's controversial mistress, through 200 objects, famous paintings by the likes of Romney, Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Lawrence, and of course those heartfelt letters between Emma and Nelson.
