Most everyone in English high society seemed to know about the affair that Horatio Nelson, Vice Admiral of the British Fleet, was carrying on with Emma, Lady Hamilton, a striking beauty—and the wife of one of his closest friends, Sir William Hamilton. Frances Nelson had little choice but to live with her pain. And the man who served Nelson as both friend and facilitator of his affairs, Alexander Davison, would spend two terms behind bars. Many historians have accepted the view that Frances, Lady Nelson, was the cause of all this anguish. She was said to be incompatible with him, cold, whining. Few military figures of the modern age—perhaps George Patton is one—have been simultaneously as reckless and brilliant.

That Hamilton Woman , also known as Lady Hamilton , is a black-and-white historical film drama, produced and directed by Alexander Korda for his British company during his exile in the United States. At the time the film was released France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Denmark had all surrendered to the Nazis and the Soviet Union was still officially allied to them, correspondingly the British were fighting against the Nazis alone and felt the need to produce films that would both boost their own morale, and also portray them sympathetically to the foreign world, and in particular, to the United States. The story begins with an aging, alcoholic woman being clapped into debtor's prison in the slums of Calais.
Emma, Lady Hamilton is often remembered as Lord Nelson's mistress, but she was also a model, muse, singer and creator of the Attitudes, a performance art show in which she appeared as famous women from history. She had started out as a sort of spokesmodel for the Temple of Health, a dodgy London clinic which sold infertile couples sessions on an electrified Celestial Bed. The shocks, it claimed, aided conception. She became the favourite subject of the painter George Romney.
