In the The Romanovs - One Last Dance Novel:
Born 28 November 1901, Eldest daughter of Wilfred Ashley, Baron Mount Temple and his wife Amalia Maud Mary Cassel, the Honourable Edwina Cynthia Annette Ashley was named in honor of her god-father, King Edward VII. Despite being fabulously wealthy, ambitious, and stunningly attractive, Edwina was a troubled soul; the product of a neglectful childhood following the death of her mother. In July of 1922 she married Lord Louis "Dickie" Mountbatten, and they became celebrated "bright young things" of high society. They eventually had two children, Patricia (1924) and Pamela (1929). Forever restless, Edwina was not satisified with her "enthusiastic boy" of a husband or her two well-behaved daughters, and took lovers and sparked scandals. Despite these affairs on both sides, Edwina and Dickie remained devoted to each other in their own unique fashion. During WWII the wayward Edwina found herself and a proper outlet for her restless energy by dedicating herself to war relief and other humanitarian causes. She died in 1960 in North Borneo.
In the What If? storyline. . .
Edwina Ashely is the witty, vivacious, intelligent and self-indulgent newlywedded wife of Lord Louis "Dickie" Mountbatten, who is a first cousin of the Tsar's children and best friend of the Prince of Wales. Having accompanied Dickie for part of the India trip, the hedonistic and frivilous Edwina fancies herself an intimate friend of the straight-laced Alexandra (Olga), the Princess of Wales . . . which couldn't be further from the truth.
