    Nothing would content her.

    "Nothing would content her."
    Without any further context, I wonder
    which is the case.
    1. It is her personality that she is not satisfied with anything.
    2. In this particular case, she might not like what is done to her.
    3. She would be satisfied (with it) more than anything else.
    Thank you.

    .
    #1 in the past is possible (it was her personality); #2 is also possible.
    #3 is likely only as a play on words, Itaru.
