Her adventures are the stuff of novels: she rode with bandits- braved desert shamals- was captured by Bedouins- and sojourned in a harem.

Called the most powerful woman in the British empire, she counselled kings and prime ministers. Bells colleagues included Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, who in 1921 invited Bell - the only woman whose advice was sought - to the Cairo Conference to determine the future of Mesopotamia.

Bell numbered among her closest friends T.E. Lawrence, St. John Philby and Arabian sheiks.
