From his first appearance in London in 1821 until his death in Paris in 1852, Count d'Orsay dominated and scandalised European society. For three decades he was the ultimate arbiter in matters of taste and style - what d'Orsay wore today, society would wear tomorrow; what he ate, his sayings, his beliefs and manners were copied by the Establishment in both Paris and London. Simultaneously he enthralled society with the 30-year soap opera of his relationship with Lady Blessington, whose daughter he married and with whose husband he was suspected of having had an affair.
