Lillie Langtry - British Singer & Actress
Lillie (or Lily) Langtry (born October 13th, 1853 and died February 12th, 1929) was a popular British stage actress and music hall singer. She was truly a 19th and early 20th century celebrity, having acted in many productions including The Lady of Lyons, As you Like It, She Stoops to Conquer, and many more.

Born Emillie Charlotte Le Breton, this actress' fame brought her multiple relationships with such powerful men as Prince Louis of Battenberg, Albert Edward (the Prince of Wales), and the Earl of Shrewsbury.

Interesting to note: Her close friend, Oscar Wilde, was the one who inspired Lily Langtry to begin performing around 1880.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces. For information on the folks who build and support the community see Daniel - Founder & Creator.
My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
