70) Elizabeth Seymour, Duchess of Somerset

Elizabeth Seymour, Duchess of Somerset (1667 - 1722). English heiress. She was one of the closest personal friends of Queen Anne, which led Jonathan Swift to direct at her one of his sharpest satires, The Windsor Prophecy, in which she was named "Carrots." (a common nickname derived from the Duchess' red hair).
