In mythology, Diana was an ancient Roman divinity who came to be associated with the Greek god Artemis. Noted for her beauty and fleetness, Diana is often depicted as a huntress.

One of the most-loved British royals in modern times, Diana, Princess of Wales, transformed herself from a shy preschool teacher’s assistant to a crusader of charities that focused on AIDS, landmines and children. She was born on July 1, 1961, to an aristocratic family with ties to the royals. In 1981 she married Prince Charles in a lavish ceremony watched by 28 million TV viewers. Fifteen years later, the devoted mother to Princes William and Harry divorced Prince Charles. The next year, on August 31, 1997, Diana was killed in a car crash while fleeing the paparazzi in Paris.
