Elizabeth Taylor 1932-2011

Remembering Hollywood's Queen, Elizabeth Taylor

The beautiful and tumultuous life of a grand dame who became movie-made royalty

MATERNAL ROLE

Taylor took pride in her large and loving family: She was the mother of four children, the grandmother of 10 and the great-grandmother of several. "My best friends," she called her kids – including sons Michael and Christopher Wilding (pictured circa 1956), from her second marriage to British actor Michael Wilding; daughter Liza Todd; and Maria Burton, whom she later adopted with husband Richard Burton.
