Biography Amelie Troubetzkoy
Amelie Rives (Amelie Louise Rives Chanler Troubetzkoy, 1863-1945), a
descendant of Dr. Thomas Walker (1715-1794) and member of the prominent
Rives family of Albemarle County, Virginia, was a noted author and
celebrity, and a princess as well. Her notoriety as an author was
partly because of her strong female characters and the erotic nature of
some of her work, which was considered scandalous for the period. She
published a number of novels, poems, and plays during her career, but
she was best know for her novel The Quick or the Dead?
Rives became a fixture in the society and gossip columns of the day not
only for her scintillating writing but also because of the scandalous
nature of her first marriage
