Benjamin Disraeli would know, being extremely good at dressing a wide 
variety of things
up as the truth, and playing both ends off against the middle.

While seducing Queen Victoria (the Hanoverian incumbent) with his novels 
and parlour talk, he
was also in contact with King Victor (the Jacobite claimant) in Sardinia 
in case Victoria didn't
bend enough to his wishes.

While Mark Twain might have been a bit blunt, at least nobody could ever 
accuse him
of being a slithery sh*t.
