The "Ladies of Llangollen", Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, were two upper-class Irish women whose relationship scandalized and fascinated their contemporaries.
Sarah Ponsonby (1755 – 9 December 1831) lived with relatives in Woodstock, County Kilkenny, Ireland. She was a second cousin of Frederick Ponsonby, 3rd Earl of Bessborough, and thus a second cousin once removed of his daughter Lady Caroline Lamb.
Eleanor Butler (1745-1829), sister of the 17th Earl, caused enormous scandal when she eloped with her neighbour, Sarah Ponsonby. They lived together for the rest of their lives in Wales where they created a world-famous and picturesque home and were known as "The Ladies of Llangollen"
