Zsa Zsa Gabor had 9 husbands and reportedly was 'the best lover'

Zsa Zsa Gabor left behind more than a legacy as a screen star in Hollywood, she was also one of the most eligible ladies in Tinsletown history with a whopping nine marriages.

Gabor, who passed away December 18, 2016 at the age of 99 after suffering from heart failure, had quite the prolific love life and her name was consistently tied to dozens of A-list actors throughout her lengthy life.

Gabor, born Sari Gabor, got her start as a young girl on the stage in Vienna after moving from Budapest, Hungary, with her family. Gabor married for the first time in 1937 at the young age of 20. Gabor married 35-year-old Turkish government official Burhan Asaf Belge, to whom she reportedly proposed. Gabor's parents reportedly showered their daughter with gifts for her engagement and gave her a 10-karat diamond. Their love was short-lived and they agreed to separate in 1941, around the same time her parent's divorced. Gabor and her mother decided to move to the United States to join her sister, Eva.

After arriving in the U.S,. Zsa Zsa met debonaire hotel icon Conrad Hilton. The duo reportedly flirted at a club and Hilton offered her money to accompany him on a trip, to which she refused. The pair married about four months after their first meeting on April 10, 1942, and had one child together, Francesca. They divorced four years later in 1946.

After her marriage to Hilton, Zsa Zsa moved onto a romance with actor, George Sanders. In 1949, she married the "All About Eve" actor and they stayed married till 1954. They starred in the film "Death of a Scoundrel" together in 1956, but the split was reportedly so nasty that Sanders later married Zsa Zsa's older sister Magda in 1970. His marriage to her only lasted a little over a month.

Zsa Zsa went on to marry financier Herbert Hutner in 1962, oil tycoon Joshua Cosden, inventor Jack Ryan, attorney Michael O'Hara and actor Felipe de Alba, all nearly back to back. None of the marriages lasted more than a couple years with the shortest lasting less than a year.

In 1986, she married her current husband, Prince Frederick von Anhalt, who was nearly 30 years her junior. The marriage made headlines, not just for the fact that Zsa Zsa was much older, but also because the marriage had a questionable royal lineage. When they married, she was given the title Princess von Anhalt, Duchess of Saxony. It was later revealed that von Anhalt only had the title from an adult adoption by Princess Marie-Auguste of Anhalt.

Their marriage -- which was the longest of all of Gabor's -- had it's ups and downs and throughout the years, there were numerous claims that von Anhalt was purposefully trying to keep his wife away from her family. He also had a dodgy past of his own, marrying and divorcing six wives prior to meeting Zsa Zsa.

A Vanity Fair article revealed that he made money by using his title to sell 68 knighthoods for $50,000 apiece and marrying one woman in exchange for $4 million. "I fall in love right away with women. I don't want to let go, and the only way not to let go is to get married," von Anhalt explained in the article. "Then after you're married and living together, you find out the rest—something not good. But I always got out of marriage in friendship."

He said he always married "good-looking, blonde women" and once claimed to have had a long-standing affair with Anna Nicole Smith.

In later years, Gabor suffered from many medical issues and had to have her leg amputated and she was in an ongoing battle with her daughter, Francesca.

Nonetheless, the Prinz said he always tried to keep her happy. "Life alone without her—I can't even think about it," von Anhalt told Vanity Fair. "I wouldn't know what to do. She was the best lover, the best friend—she was the best everything."

Talk about a love life to rival all others.
