Writer, traveller, political officer, administrator, spy and archaeologist Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell aka The Uncrowned Queen of Iraq commits suicide by an overdose of sleeping pills at the age of 58 in Baġdād, Muḥāfaẓät Baġdād, Iraq.


There is much debate on Bell's death but it is unknown whether the overdose was an intentional suicide or accidental since she had asked her maid to wake her.
