Violet Gordon-Woodhouse was many things. She was the woman you can thank for bringing the harpsichord back into style; the sister of Roland Gwynne, lover to serial killer John Bodkin Adams; the subject of an erotic poetry book, authored by Radclyffe Hall; wife to four husbands at once (some of whom may have been husbanding each other, if you know what I mean); and, in her old age, an enthusiastic supporter of Hitler.

For all this insanity, she looked great in a turban.
