THE JERSEY LILLY SALOON
DEDICATED TO ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SONGTRESSES OF THE 19th CENTURY
Lillie Langtry (October 13, 1853 â€“ February 12, 1929), born Emilie Charlotte Le Breton, was initially celebrated as a young woman for her beauty and charm, and later established a reputation as an actress and producer. In May 1877, Lady Sebright invited her to "an evening at home", attended by some of the famous artists of the day. Her looksâ€” together with her ability to enchant those in her company€”attracted interest, comments, and invitations from artists and society hostesses.
By 1881, she had become an actress and starred in many plays, including "She Stoops to Conquer", "The Lady of Lyons", and "As You Like It", eventually running her own stage production company. In later life she performed "dramatic sketches" in vaudeville. She was also known for her relationships with noblemen, including the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Shrewsbury, and Prince Louis of Battenberg. She was the subject of widespread public and media interest.
