British Dutch writer. Her autobiography, "Queen of the Headhunters," was published in the early 1970s.
Sir Charles Vyner de Windt Brooke, a member of the Sarawak administration since 1897 when he succeeded his father, became Sylvia Brett’s husband on 02/11/1911. With their union, Sylvia Brett became Sylvia of Sarawak, the Ranee. Known as a social butterfly and spendthrift, she spent much of her time "squandering" the state’s treasury, which was already diminished considerably.
The marriage produced three daughters, Leonora, Elizabeth and Valerie. Sylvia spent money lavishly on her daughters, indulging their every whim, while she became increasingly bored with the obligations of her title. Her husband eventually decided that Sarawak should be ceded to Great Britain, and after a bitter family feud, Sir Charles terminated Brooke rule on 7/01/1946.
She died on November 11, 1971 in Barbados, age 86.
