May have been born Emy or Amy Lyon. Is known to have used the names Emma and Emily Lyon and Emma Hart or Harte.

"Emma fell in love with Nelson after the Battle of the Nile (1798), when she and her husband William Hamilton, the British Ambassador at Naples, offered the wounded victor hospitality. Emma and Nelson returned to England in 1800 where a daughter was born. The affair was an international scandal, but it enhanced Nelson's reputation as a romantic hero. At his death, in 1805, Nelson entrusted Emma's care to the nation, but this was ignored by the government. She died a pauper in France in [1815]." National Portrait Gallery website
