Raquel Welch, who paved the way as both an actress and international sex symbol has died … TMZ has learned.

According to family members, Raquel died this morning after a brief illness.

Welch first rose to fame for her back-to-back roles in “Fantastic Voyage” and “One Million Years B.C.” — both in 1966.

Welch only had a handful of lines in ‘B.C.’ but it was her wardrobe — a simple and skimpy deerskin bikini — that catapulted her to sex symbol status.

From there, Welch’s profile blew up, and she was one of the most sought-after female stars throughout the ’60s and ’70s … taking home plenty of hardware in the process, including a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her 1974 role in “The Three Musketeers.”

RIP Raquel Welch.
