WELCOME TO THE CURIOUS WORLD
AND LEGEND OF LOLA MONTEZ.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

FEBRUARY 17th IS LOLA'S BIRTHDAY.
SHE WOULD BE 196 YEARS OLD NOW...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELIZA!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The Countess is just setting up, so pray forgive the spareness of the furnishings.
In days to come we'll be exploring the extraordinary legacy of the Victorian
Irish girl who refused to be a Victorian and lived to tell the tale-- for a time.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Not that she was often inclined to tell the truth! ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

There are Lolas of stage and screen, quasi-Lolas and Lola namesakes, Lolas in works
of fiction and of non-fiction (though it's often hard to distinguish between the two).
We'll see true images of Lola as well as those misidentified as such, with sometimes-
hilarious artists' conceptions of episodes from her eventful life-- not all of which
actually occurred. Plus there are Lola artifacts and products, both period and modern.
