Alma Mahler is a contender for some of these.


Alma Mahler (born Alma Schindler in Vienna, 1879) married the foremost composer, architect and novelist of her day (Gustav Mahler, Walter Gropius and Franz Werfel, respectively). She was a noted musician and socialite in her own right, and the subject of a brilliant song by Tom Lehrer.

Many other accomplished women have been linked romantically to three or more remarkable men--Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Marianne Faithfull and Mia Farrow all come to mind--but something about Alma really stands out.
