Lloyd George's life was indeed a perpetual conflict'. He was a habitual womaniser and, despite his early, enduring attachment to Margaret Owen, marriage did not curb his behaviour. There were many private scandals in a life devoted to public duty.Ffion Hague illuminates his complex attitude to women. Her own interest stems from the many parallels in her own life.
