This is the Signed original Pen & Ink Wash by John Millar Watt.

Lola Montez (Eliza Rosanna Gilbert) was an Irish dancer, actress and adventuress who became famous as a "Spanish dancer", courtesan and mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria who was so struck by her beauty that he offered her a castle. She accepted, became Baroness Rosenthal and Countess of Lansfeld, and remained as his mistress.

Under her influence Ludwig inaugurated liberal and anti-Jesuit governmental policies, but his infatuation with her helped to bring about the collapse of his regime in the revolution of 1848. In March of that year he abdicated in favour of his son.

Montez fled to London, where in 1849 she married Lieutenant George Heald, although she had never been divorced from James. Heald later left her.

This is the original art on board with pen, ink and wash. Produced for Princess comic in 1961. SIGNED lower right by John Millar Watt.
