Abigail Hill Masham
Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 6, 1734

English Nobility. Baroness Masham of Otes and confidante of Queen Anne. She was the cousin of Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, through whose influence she entered the royal household. In 1707 she married Samuel (later Baron) Masham, a groom to Anne's husband, Prince George of Denmark. A subtle intriguer and strongly Tory, she gradually turned the Queen against the Marlboroughs, and in 1710 superseded her cousin as the Queen's unoffical advisor and power behind the throne. After Anne's death in 1714, Masham lived in retirement. (bio by: julia&keld)
