One of the greatest Hollywood stars of all time, Elizabeth Taylor wasn't just a beauty – she was a talent. The winner of two Academy Awards, Taylor lit up the screen from the 1940s through to the ‘70s, when she began devoting less time to acting, and more to the philanthropic work that truly captured her heart. After her death in 2011, following years of illness, her legacy remains – as does a simmering controversy over the division of estate.
