Robert Plant Ex-Wife: Who is Maureen Wilson?

Maureen Wilson is the former wife of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Golden God’ Robert Plant. Together they were one of the most beautiful couples in rock ‘n’ roll history.

Maureen Wilson was born in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), India on November 20th, 1948. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to Birmingham in England where her father owned and operated a steel factory.

In 1966, Maureen Wilson met Robert Plant at a Georgie Fame concert, which at the last minute was cancelled. From then on they began seeing each other and their relationship blossomed. Throughout the mid-1960s, Plant struggled financially. He played in various bands such as Listen, Band of Joy, and even had a few solo projects.

On November 9th, 1968, Robert Plant and Maureen Wilson married. The couple went on to have three children; Carmen Jane Plant (1968), Karac Pendragon Plant (1972 – 1977), and Logan Romero Plant (1979).

Sadly, during Robert’s 1977 North American Tour with Led Zeppelin, his first son Karac passed away at the age of five from a stomach virus. Plant remembers it being the “absolute darkest times of my life.” But went on to write “All My Love” in his late son’s honour.

Due to a number of factors, most significantly Karac’s death and Robert’s extended time away from the family, Maureen Wilson and Robert Plant divorced in August of 1983.
