Description: Duchess of Portsmouth (Louise Renee de Penancoet de Kerouaille; September 1649-November 14, 1734), mistress of Charles II (May 29, 1630-February 6, 1685), and who was also a secret agent for Louis XIV (The Sun King; September 5, 1638-September 1, 1715), supplying Louis with important information as to England's military ambitions against France.
