Elizabeth Taylor, a cultural icon, has died today.  Her many marriages were legendary.  She was married to Richard Burton twice.  She broke up the marriage of Eddie Fisher to her best friend Debbie Reynolds shortly after the death of her husband Mike Todd.  At the time it was considered to be the end of her career.  During the filming of one of her most legendary roles as Cleopatra is when her relationship with Burton started. 

During her lifetime she was known for her many chartiable works, most notably for AIDS research after the death of her longtime friend Rock Hudson.  She has 4 children and 9 grandchildren.
