Double Agent or naive floozy? The world may never know the true story of Margarethe Zelle (1876-1917), a Dutch exotic dancer and courtesan, that has captured popular imagination as an international woman of mystery during WWI.
As a daughter to a Dutch businessman. August on 7 /1876 ....
Adam Zelle was a well-to-do hatter. Bud when he abandoned his family, and separate, from Margaretha’s mother Antje died soon after, the teenage girl found herself in dreadful circumstances.
She travelled throughout Europe for actions in Berlin, Madrid, Monte Carlo and Vienna In 1911, she even acted as s Venus in the opera temple of Milan, the Scala. But the first world war would make anabrupt end to her career as a dancer. In august 1914 her contract with the Berlin Metro pole Theatre was broken.
The public was extremely enthusiastically and also the newspapers wrote praising concerning her actions. A journalist of press wrote: nobody has ever dared to do it this way, trembling of ecstasy and
without vales, stepping for the god, with such clean gestures, so dared and nevertheless pure! She is a Najade, a sister of nymphs, and Walkure, created to lead men to their perdition. As from that moment Margaretha's personality took a high flight.
Paris 1905. Mata Hari Dance in ParisThat at the beginning of this century, everyone's talking about.Her short stay there however became a fiasco, but in 1904, she was back and her star was rising since then. Margaretha now used the name: Mata Hari After a initial difficult start as a circus artist and painters model, Margaretha in 1905 became a hit in the Parisian society world. As the oriental dancer Mata Hari (Malays for Eye of the Day, or The Sun) she acted in the museum of Oriental Art Dressed in nothing else then a sarong and a jewel decorated bust holder, Mata Hari danced the, so-called official oriental dances, for the god Shiva.
Mata Hari again is in the picture. This way shies in high spirit’s It was not easy for her to stand stillfor a longer time, Mata Hari always loved to be photographed and not exclusively in her "dancing costume"
she would give anything to get the attention.
