As he appears in the text:

“Natalie Clifford Barney met Élisabeth de Gramont in 1909, the same year that Renée Vivien, another lover, passed away. Natalie was already committed to non-monogamy, or, as Élisabeth later described it, ‘indifferent to everything except the free play of her life.’ The two bonded over astrology and tarot, and, though Élisabeth was married with two children, began a love affair that lasted the rest of their lives.”
