League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Wiki

Fanny Hill, circa 1787

Fanny Hill is a former British prostitute and a member of Gulliver's Fellowship.


After living a beautiful love-story which ultimately led to her husband cheating on her, Fanny started traveling through the sexual landcapes of Europe, eventually coming across Lemuel Gulliver and Captain Clegg, before settling in the land of Horselberg, where she became lover of Queen Venus. Due to the mystical properties of Horselberg, Fanny aged very slowly, and was still young when she encountered Clegg and Gulliver again, decades later, now as members of the second incarnation of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. She joined the League and, after its dissolution following Gulliver's death, she start traveling again through erotic Europe with fellow League members, Percy and Marguerite Blakeney and the sex-changing Orlando. After their trips, she settled again in Horselberg.

Fanny Hill is the main character of Fanny Hill, or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, an epistolary novel written by British author John Cleland in 1749. The plot describes the sexual adventures of a young woman from a village near Liverpool (UK) who becomes a prostitute when she is recruited by one Mrs. Brown. The book is often considered to be the first pornographic novel ever written. It was censored when published and Cleland was arrested. An American edition of the book was also forbidden in 1821 because of its "obscenity". The book was adapted to the little or big screen several times.
