Admiral Lord Nelson's 'expensive' mistress Emma Hamilton.<br />
<br />
An incredibly rare photograph of Admiral Lord Nelson's love child showing her as a middle-aged impoverished woman has been uncovered.<br />
<br />
The colour ambrotype picture shows Horatia Nelson Ward in the mid-19th century, following a lifetime of financial hardship. <br />
<br />
After the great naval hero's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, society spurned his mistress Lady Emma Hamilton and she and Horatia ended up in a debtors' prison.
