    English comedienne and mistress of Charles II (1650-1687)


  1. nell gwynn

    Nell Gwynn, officially known as Eleanor Gwyn, was a long-time mistress of King Charles II of England. Born in London around 1650, she gained fame as a comic actress on the Restoration stage before becoming one of the king's numerous mistresses in the late 1660s. Despite her lowly origins and scandalous profession, she was well-liked for her vivacious, good-natured personality. She is also often noted as one of the few royal mistresses to come from a lower-class background. Nell Gwynn died in 1687, in her late 30s.
