Margaret Maultasch, the last Countess of Tyrol and princess of Carinthia (born 1318 – died 1369), was reputedly the ugliest women in history. Her looks, and her terrified subjects, made her the perfect scapegoat for the ravages of the Black Death, but her land holdings also made her an extremely desirable political bride. A fierce dispute over the events surrounding her divorce led to her being called Maultasch or “bag mouth” – meaning “whore” or “vicious woman”. . .
