Ghislaine Noelle Marion Maxwell is a former British socialite who was born on December 25, 1961 and has been convicted of s** crimes. In 2021, she was found guilty of child s** trafficking and other crimes related to Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy man who had been convicted of s** crimes. On June 28, 2022, she was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Ghislaine Maxwell was born in 1961 in Maisons-Laffitte, Yvelines, France. She was the ninth and last child of Elisabeth (née Meynard), a scholar from France, and Robert Maxwell, a British media owner from Czechoslovakia. Her father was Jewish and her mother was a Huguenot, which is a French Protestant.

Maxwell was born two days before her fifteen-year-old brother. Michael was in a car accident that put him in a coma for a long time until his death in 1967. Her mother said that the accident had an effect on the whole family, and she thought that Ghislaine had shown signs of anorexia when she was still a toddler.
During her childhood, Ghislaine and her family lived in Oxford in a 53-room mansion called Headington Hill Hall. This was also where Robert Maxwell’s publishing company, Pergamon Press, had its offices. Her mother said that she raised all of her children as Anglicans. She first went to Oxford High School for Girls in North Oxford.
When she was nine, she went to Edgarley Hall, a boarding preparatory school in Somerset. When she was thirteen, she went to Headington School. Maxwell went to Marlborough College to get his A-Levels. Then he went to Balliol College, Oxford, to get his degree in Modern History with Languages in 1985.
Relationships With Jeffrey Epstein
When Maxwell first met American businessman Jeffrey Epstein is not clear. Steven Hoffenberg, Epstein’s former business partner, says that Robert Maxwell introduced his daughter to Epstein in the late 1980s.
The Times said that Maxwell and Epstein met at a party in New York in the early 1990s after Maxwell had “a hard break-up with Count Gianfranco Cicogna Mozzoni” (1962–2012) of the CIGA Hotels clan.
Maxwell dated Epstein for a few years in the early 1990s, and they stayed close friends for more than 25 years until Epstein’s death in 2019.
It’s still not clear what their relationship is like. Several of Epstein’s household workers said in a deposition in 2009 that Epstein called her his “main girlfriend” and that she hired, fired, and supervised his staff beginning around 1992.
She has also been called the “Lady of the House” and his “aggressive assistant” by Epstein’s staff. In 2003, Vicky Ward wrote a profile of Epstein for Vanity Fair. In it, she said that Epstein called Maxwell “my best friend.” Ward also said that Maxwell seemed to “keep a lot of his life in order.”
Politico said that Maxwell and Epstein were friends with a number of important people in politics, academia, business, and law, such as former Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, lawyer Alan Dershowitz, and Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
Maxwell is known for being friends with Prince Andrew for a long time and for taking him to a “hookers and pimps” party in New York. She put Epstein in touch with Prince Andrew, and the three of them got together a lot. In 2000, Maxwell and Epstein went to a party at the Queen’s estate in Norfolk, England, called Sandringham House.
The party was put on by Prince Andrew, supposedly for Maxwell’s 39th birthday. In an interview with the BBC in November 2019, Prince Andrew confirmed that Maxwell and Epstein had gone to an event he had invited them to, but he said it was just a “straightforward shooting weekend.”

Epstein changed the name of one of his businesses to the Ghislaine Corporation in 1995. The Palm Beach, Florida-based company shut down in 1998. Maxwell also took Epstein to his private island in the Caribbean. He was a trained helicopter pilot.
Epstein was found guilty of trying to get a minor to do prostitution in 2008. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail, of which he served 13 months. After Epstein was freed, Maxwell still went to important social events, but she and Epstein were no longer seen together in public.
By the end of 2015, Maxwell had stopped going to most social events.
