Lucy Noël Martha Leslie, Countess of Rothes (25 December 1884 12 September 1956) was the wife of the 19th Earl of Rothes, whom she married on 19 April 1900. "Noëlle," as she spelled her forename of choice, was the only child of Thomas and Clementina Dyer-Edwardes.
Countess of Rothes is best known as a survivor of the RMS Titanic. She embarked at Southampton with her parents, Thomas and Clementina Dyer-Edwardes, cousin Gladys Cherry, and maid Roberta Maioni. Her parents disembarked at Cherbourg, while the others continued, en route for New York and possibly Vancouver, British Columbia. While Lady Rothes and her cousin were originally installed in the first class basic cabin C37, it is possible they upgraded to a more commodious suite, C77 (in an interview with the American press, she has been quoted as having said she and her cousin stayed in stateroom B77). The Countess, her cousin and maid were rescued in lifeboat 8.
She died in Hove, Sussex, on 12 September 1956, having suffered for some time from heart disease.
In James Cameron's Titanic from 1997 she was played by Rochelle Rose (22 years old back then).
