That would be *Dame* Rebecca West.  She was bestowed the title during her 
lifetime (do you call that knighting?  She hardly needed to be made a 
"lady").  She wrote Black Lamb & Grey Falcom about Yugoslavia between the 
World Wars.  And when everything starting getting crazy there a few years 
ago, everyone dug up her book and said, "Oh, so that's what's going on."  
Wrote great fiction and non-fiction.  Had a child with H. G. Wells out of 
wedlock (well, Wells was married) who later wrote a biography of his father.

She's easily one of the most fascinating writers of the 20th century.
