Maud Allen was an American dancing girl, born in Canada, but brought up in California.
Maud's original name was Beulah Maude Durrant, but she changed her name after her brother Theodore killed two girls, in a church.
Maud moved to Germany and, in various parts of Europe, starred in her own version of Oscar Wilde's play Salome.
She danced the dance of the seven veils.
In England, Maud's behaviour upset Noel Pemberton Billing, a member of the UK parliament.
Billing believed that many top people were gay and that, during World War I, German spies were seducing and blackmailing many top people in the UK.
It was suggested that child abuse was linked to some of the blackmail.
Billing founded a magazine.
In 1918, he wrote an article, based on information from Harold Sherwood Spencer, which claimed that the Germans were blackmailing "47,000 highly placed British perverts".
The magazine suggested that many of the top people in the UK were secretly Jewish.
There was reference to a 'close tribal affair'  and 'monopolies'.
Billing believed that Maud Allan may have been having an affair with Margot Asquith, the wife of the British Prime Minister.
Billing believed that Allan and the Asquiths were giving away secrets to the Germans.
There was a libel case.
Maud Allan lost.
One of the people who spoke up for Billing was lord Alfred Douglas.
"In 1923, Douglas was found guilty of libelling Churchill and was sentenced to six months in prison. Douglas had claimed that Churchill had been part of a Jewish conspiracy to kill Lord Kitchener, the British Secretary of State for War." - Lord Alfred Douglas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to the Encyclopaedia of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexal, Transgender, and Queer Culture, Maud lived the rest of her life with her female lover, Verna Aldrich. in Los Angeles, California.
Sir William Wiseman, the Jewish head of British intelligence in the USA, who, during World war I, was reportedly friendly with Max Warburg, the Jewish head of German intelligence.
