Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (G)
Glogg, Helen

Born in Perthshire in the middle of the eighteenth century, she was the daughter of a blacksmith. When she turned eighteen she booked passage for America, but at sea her ship was attacked by pirates who killed all the men and took all the women to the slave market in Algiers. There she was purchased for the emperor of Morocco, who became so infatuated with her beauty that he made her his principal wife, and later empress.
