  Dorothy Jordan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mrs Jordan (November 21, 1761 July 5, 1816), actress, was the mistress of King William IV of the United Kingdom.
She was born Dorothea Bland near Waterford, the daughter of Francis Bland and his wife, née Grace Phillips.
She became an actress and assumed the name "Mrs Jordan", because it was slightly more respectable for a married woman to be on the stage (there was no "Mr Jordan" and Dorothea Bland never married).
