Born on July 19, 1860, Lizzie Borden was a 19th century version of OJ Simpson.
Although it's not quite numerically accurate, her notoriety can be well summed up by a charming jump rope song of the time:
Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks.
And when she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.
On the anniversary of the murders, one lucky e-bay bidder will be staying in the room where her stepmother was found lying face down in a pool of blood.
