Constance Markievicz, born Gore-Booth, was known in Anglo-Irish society as the Rebel Countess, and to the Dublin poor who loved her as 'Madame'. She is chiefly known for her part in the Easter Rising of 1916, but how she came to be there, what role she played and what happened to her afterwards is a fascinating and strange story.
