In 1680, Arabella Hunt, a famous opera singer and lutenist, married her lover, Amy Poulter. Hunt and Poulter claimed that Poulter was a hermaphrodite, but Poulter was found to be a 'perfect woman', and the marriage was annulled. Poulter died soon after, and Hunt never took another lover, male or female, for the rest of her life.
