Wallis, Duchess of Windsor (1896-1986), Wife of Duke of Windsor

Sitter in 194 portraits
Born Elizabeth Wallis Warfield in Pennsylvania, she married Earl Winfield Spencer, Jr in 1916. Divorced in 1927, she married Ernest Simpson in 1928. They met Edward, Prince of Wales in London in 1931. When the Prince became King, his insistence on marrying the twice-divorced American precipitated a constitutional crisis that led to his abdication in 1936. He was created Duke of Windsor and the couple married soon after. The couple settled in Paris after the war.
