No one, with any certainty, can sort out the truth from the legend of this remarkable English poet, who was married to a British India Service officer many years her senior.  He died of heart failure, supposedly, on discovering that she had been unfaithful to him with an Indian prince.  She took her own life shortly after her husband's death.  These tales have become the stuff of romantic legend, but in truth no one knows The Truth  - W.R.E.
