Hon. Lois Sturt and Princess Olga Dolgorouky, Lord Evan Morgan's Two Wives

Meet the two scandalous wives of Evan Morgan, Viscount Tredegar: Lois Sturt, actress & flapper of flappers and Princess Olga Dolgorouky, from a great Russian pedigree older than the Romanovs

Hon. Evan Frederic Morgan,( 1893-1949) the last Viscount Tredegar of Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales, poet, traveller and homosexual, married two dazzling ladies. In 1927 he married Hon. Lois Ina Sturt ( 1900-1937) dancer and actress and well known flapper. After Lois' death in 1937, Evan married the Russian Princess Olga Dolgorouky, (1915-1998) one of the Tsar's Imperial Family. Here are the stories, the scandals and the truth about a remarkable duo and their odd ball husband a man who was a congenital liar, a dreamer and an escapist.
