GEORGIANA, 
DUCHESS OF DEVONSHIRE
 
Georgiana Cavendish, descendant of Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough
and daughter of Earl Spencer
was the original of the famous Gainsborough portrait
Married in 1774 to the Duke of Devonshire
she was remarkable for her talent and beauty
and became leader of fashion, 
star of the aristocratic world, 
and an influence in politics. 
In 1784 she canvassed successfully for Mr. Fox
and was the heroine of the famous story of 
the butcher’s vote won by a kiss. 
She had a cultivated taste for poetry and the fine arts;
she encouraged genius, 
and practised charity, 
and was a careful and loving mother
to her two daughters and her son, 
afterwards the sixth Duke.
