1905 Maud Glen Coats, Duchess of Wellington by John Singer Sargent (private collection)

Her husband soiled his family's illustrious name with involvement in Nazi-leaning organizations. According to his Wikipedia article, "...When Archibald Maule Ramsay formed the 'Right Club' in 1939, Wellington chaired its early meetings. Ramsay, describing the Right Club, boasted that 'The main objective was to oppose and expose the activities of organised Jewry.' On the day that World War II broke out, The Duke of Wellington was quoted as blaming the conflict on 'anti-appeasers and the f______ Jews.'"
