Alexander George Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath

Alexander George Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath (1932 –2020), styled Viscount Weymouth between 1946 and 1992, was a British aristocratic landowner, who sat in the House of Lords from 1992 until 1999, and a self-acclaimed artist and author.
Lord Bath was in the media spotlight for his hippy fashion-sense and for developing his mansion Longleat as an animal sanctuary and tourist attraction.
In 1969, Thynn married Hungarian-born Anna Gyarmathy, also known as Anna Gaël, but he had open sexual relations with over seventy women during his marriage, many of whom lived "grace and favour" in estate cottages. Lord Bath referred to his mistresses as wifelets.
Lord Bath was admitted to the Royal United Hospital, Bath, on 28 March 2020 and while in hospital tested positive for COVID-19 during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. He died whilst infected by the disease on 4 April 2020 at the age of 87.
