Author and art historian. Married to Charles Wentworth Dilke. FH says he "never liked her" and called her the "only blue-stocking I ever met in England". According to FH she once invited him to meet Jusserand, the French diplomat and scholar, to discuss Shakespeare. As it turned out, Lady Dilke monopolised the conversation and neither of the two men got a word in. "To this day I know nothing of Jusserand's views".
