Lola Montez was the stage name of a genteel Anglo-Irish woman who was wayward from an early age. However she was an accompished dancer. Unfortunately she was, unlike today's courtesans with their managers, publicity agents, and celebrity friends, a somewhat ingenuous woman. She was cast aside by the king's family after he died. This tells us a lot; had she been manipulative she'd have taken their double standards to the court of public opinion. She walked away head held high and no doubt had the last laugh albeit it in her poverty.

It is said that Frederick VI of Denmark had 4 children by his mistress Frederikke Dannemand and I have also heard that he had a 5th child but I'm not sure with whom is this true?

Frederick VI's children with Frederikke Dannemand were:
- Lovisa, Countess of Dannemand
- Karoline, Countess of Dannemand
- Frederik, Count of Dannemand
- Waldemar, Count of Dannemand

I have never heard of a fifth illegitimate child of the King. You are probably referring to Frederikke's child born in 1815; that child was almost certainly not the King's. While Frederick VI was in Vienna, he received news of her unfaithfulness; initially reluctant to believe the rumours, he was nevertheless forced to face the truth when, upon return, he found Frederikke visibly pregnant. Their relationship ended for some time but by 1818's they were back together; the last child of the couple, Waldemar, was born in 1819.

I'm surprised that empress Catherine the Great of Russia haven't been mentioned here. She is known to have had many lovers during her life, both during her marriage and after she ousted her husband, tsar Peter III, from the throne. Her last lover was 40 years younger than her. She also had two illegitime children by one of her lovers, count Grigori Orlov. Catherine the Great - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Caroline Matilda of Great Britain, queen of Denmark, caused a scandal having an affair with her husband's (king Christian VII) doctor, Johann Friedrich Struensee, and have a child by him, princess Louise Auguste of Denmark (king Carl Gustaf of Sweden, king Constantine of Greece and queen Sofia of Spain are her descendants). The affair was discovered and Caroline Matilda was divorced and sent to exile without her children while Struensee was executed. She died in 1775, just 23 years old.
