Elizabeth Taylor was as famous for her love life as her acting. There were no fewer than 8 marriages - though only 7 husbands, as she married Richard Burton twice.
Conrad 'Nicky' Hilton (1950-1951)
Her first marriage, to one of the heirs of the hotelier Conrad Hilton, ended in divorce after less than a year.
Michael Wilding (1952-1957)
Marriage number two, to the British film actor, lasted a full five years and gave Taylor two sons, Michael and Christopher.
Michael Todd (1957-1958)
Taylor was already pregnant with Todd's daughter, Liza, when they married - but Todd died in a plane crash barely a year later.
Eddie Fisher (1959-1964)
Eyebrows raised in Hollywood when Fisher, a singer, divorced the actress Debbie Reynolds to marry Taylor - his best friend's widow.
Richard Burton (1964-1974 and 1975-1976)
Widely regarded as the tempestuous love of Taylor's life, Burton married (and divorced) her twice - they adopted a daughter, Maria.
John Warner (1976-1982)
Taylor went from movie star to politician with her sixth husband, a Republican senator.
Larry Fortensky (1991-1996)
Fortensky, a construction worker, became Taylor's seventh and final husband.
