President John Fitzgerald Kennedy's womanising was a well known thing, but never-before-seen private letters from Jackie Kennedy have been released and they show just how heartbreaking his wandering eye was for her.
In Jackie's letters to Vincentian priest Joseph Leonard she says:
The handwritten letters from 14 years of correspondence between 1950 and 1964 also shed light on just how isolated Jackie Kennedy felt in her marriage.
"Maybe I'm just dazzled and picture myself in a glittering world of crowned heads and Men of Destiny – and not just a sad little housewife.
"That world can be very glamorous from the outside - but if you're in it - and you're lonely - it could be a Hell" she says.
While there is no doubt that Jackie despaired over JFK's relentless affairs, in one letter she does say, "I love being married much more than I did even in the beginning."
All 33 of the letters are set to be auctioned at Sheppard's Irish Auction House in Durrow, Co Laois, on 10 June and are expected to go for over 1 million euros. They are practically Jackie O's own autobiography.
