    I ve needed time to think about this one..and I m in danger of running out of superlatives.Dora Jordan was an immense super star in her day, deservedly so Hugely talented as a comic actress with an immense range of roles from Shakespeare to slapstick 18 19 century equivalent Astutely aware of her wide ranging public, musically talented and commercially shrewd she was also a very decent human being Her stamina was super human, touring widely, often with a newish born baby in tow 13 survived I ve needed time to think about this one..and I m in danger of running out of superlatives.Dora Jordan was an immense super star in her day, deservedly so Hugely talented as a comic actress with an immense range of roles from Shakespeare to slapstick 18 19 century equivalent Astutely aware of her wide ranging public, musically talented and commercially shrewd she was also a very decent human being Her stamina was super human, touring widely, often with a newish born baby in tow 13 survived and she miscarried at least twice A working mother and a very good one as Claire Tomalin shows, particularly in her wide use of Dora s correspondence she was a prolific letter writer She bore 10 children to her royal love...

    I love Claire Tomalin best living biographer and this is a good one.Mrs Jordan has appeared as a bit part player in lots of other stuff I ve read, and it was fascinating to learnabout an extraordinary woman If you re interested in the history of the theatre, women s roles in society, the way George III screwed up all his children s relationships the power of satire and the changing or not changing way the media deals with people who don t fit the ...

    Mistresses are practically as established a tradition in the Royal Family as Trooping the Colour or the Opening of Parliament From Rosamund Clifford to Jane Shore, Nell Gwynn to Alice Keppell, there has been a long list of them, and Dora Jordan fits comfortably into that list Like many of them too, she was discarded when her royal paramour tired of her, swept under the rug and effectively whitewashed from history One previous historian dismissed the Duke of Clarence s, later King William IV, Mistresses are practically as established a tradition in the Royal Family as Trooping the Colour or the Opening of Parliament From Rosamund Clifford to Jane Shore, Nell Gwynn to Alice Keppell, there has been a long list of them, and Dora Jordan fits comfortably into that list Like many of them too, she was discarded when her royal paramour tired of her, swept under the rug and effectively whitewashed from history One previous historian dismissed the Duke of Clarence s, later King William IV, relationship with Dora as a connection with a well known actress and left it at that.But such a dismissal does a grave disservice to both Dora and her relationship with Clarence It wasn t a brief affair or a fling, a casual relationship that served both parties and flickered out of its own accord Dora and the Duke of Clarence were married in all but name, living together for twenty years and producing ten children together They were devoted ...

    Another well written gem by the talented biographer Claire Tomalin Though MRS JORDAN has a tadpersonal interjection by the author than needed in a biography, it is easily forgiven Tomalin started out with a massive study of actresses during Jordan s time period before refocusing on solely the life times of Mrs Jordan Tomalin s passion for Jordan s life the common issues of the time bubbles over into personal conjecture in a lesser biographer s hand this would be cloying Another well written gem by the talented biographer Claire Tomalin Though MRS JORDAN has a tadpersonal interjection by the author than needed in a biography, it is easily forgiven Tomalin started out with a massive study of...

    Someone needs to make a movie about this remarkable British actress In her prime she was as popular as any rock star is today She had lots of children, so we re grateful the term baby bump hadn t yet been foisted on the world.
