That doesn't help. I've been searching for this person, since you posted it.

And now one very similar to your one...
I'm German by birth (although I was not born in Germany), but my mother, my husband and my sister-in-law (my brothers wife) are British and strictly related...who am I?

my first thought is princess victoria of hesse ?
victoria was born in windsor castle, being the daughter of princess alice of great britain / grandduchess of hesse, whose youngest sister princess beatrice married prince henry of battenburg, a brother of her husband prince louis of battenburg who was naturalised as a british subject upon joining the british navy aged 14 !! (btw prince's louis and henry was also cousin to victoria's father louis, grandduke of hesse)
victoria's brother prince ernest louis of hesse married his first cousin princess victoria melita the daugther of prince alfred, duke of edinburgh, later duke of saxe coburg, a brother of both princess alice and princess beatrice, all three being children of queen victoria..... correct me if i am wrong.....

EmpressRouge is right, I thought to Queen Mary: born Princess of Teck, her mother was born Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge, granddaughter of King George III; he husband was King George V, her brother Alexander married Princess Alice of Albany.
But also Victoria Mountbatten ties in with my clues...

Jane Digby

I have one related to the above:
The notorious Jane Digby was an relative of mine, and like her, I was the most famous courtesan of my time. In addition to 3 marriages to famous men, I had affairs with numerous powerful men of my time on both sides of the Atlantic. As a widow, I became a powerful political force in my adopted country before dying after a swim in the Ritz in Paris. Who am I?

her first husband was lord ellenborough
the prince was felix schwarzenburg
the german king was ludwig I of bavaria
her second husband was baron carl-theodore von venningen
her third husband was count sryrinidon theotoky (burkes peerage does not list him as a husband)
the greek king was otto, a son of the adove king of bavaria.
the eastern prince was the chief of the pallikares.

jane was loved and accepted by the mezrab tribe as their queen !!. it is said that her final marriage, of twenty five years was wildy ecstatically passionate !!

Correct. Pamela Beryl Digby Churchill Hayward Harriman had admired her ancestor Jane. Pamela claimed she was introduced to Hitler in Munich by Unity Mitford. During and after marriage to Winston Churchill's only son, her conquests included Edward R. Murrow, Jock Whitney, William S. Paley, Prince Aly Khan, Elie de Rothschild, Alfonso de Portago and Gianni Agnelli.

She married broadway producer Leland Hayward after she famously stole him from his wife Slim. Shortly after Hayward's death, she married former ambassador and New York governor the also recently widowed Averell Harriman who had been a lover during her Churchill marriage. They were staunch supporters of the Democratic party. After Averell's death, Pamela positioned herself to be the "Doyenne of the Democrats" and fundraised through her "PamPACs." She was named ambassador to France in 1993 by President Clinton and died in Paris in 1997.

I was the third child in my father's second marrige. I also had an older half-brother who was the crown prince.

I was prone to scandal according to history but I married and my oldest child was born in England and was carried to his christening by Elizabeth I.

One of my closest friends were a Spanish ambassador.
I financed a fleet of pirates and I was good at tax collection.

Who am I?
