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  ...  Displaying 750 of 1982 characters.
