Post by: veu-1 on January 10, 2012, 07:16:11 AM
Rita Hayworth (born Margarita Carmen Cansino; October 17, 1918 – May 14, 1987) was an American film actress and dancer who attained fame during the 1940s as one of the era's top stars.

In 1948 she left her film career to marry Prince Aly Khan, a son of Sultan Mahommed Shah, Aga Khan III, the leader of the Ismaili sect of Shia Islam. They were married on May 27, 1949.

The couple have a daughter, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan.

I wonder why nobody wrote about the intriguing lives of the members of this family...

Princess Yasmin Aga Khan had a tragedy to see her only child Andrew Ali Aga Khan Embiricos either murdered or committing suicide less then a year ago....Her son was from her marriage to Swiss-Greek economist and shipping heir Basil Embiricos.Their son Andrew was gay,had a very turbulent,not to say “kinky” sex life style and was HIV positive...

Love affairs connected to this family affected many European royal,noble and wealthy families...

Prince Aly Khan's first son,Prince Karim Aga Khan IV who had been divorcing for years his former wife Gabriele,Prinzessin zu Leiningen because of other women such as Beatrice,Gräfin von der Schulenburg...

According newspapers,last year in Madrid,Queen Sophia was not at all amused sitting at the same table with a Ali Khan's mistress,divorcee and mother-of-four-Beatrice von der Schulenburg...perhaps because she reminded her of Corina,Prinzessin zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn,her husband's sweetheart...

Beatrice is daughter of Baron Frederik van Pallandt and has descended from many great Dutch and German noble families,including Nassau...She was married to Count Jeffrey Werner von der Schulenburg,London based descendant of King George II of Great Britain.

They divorced in 2005 and the rumor is that in time Aga Khan IV will marry for the 3rd time to Beatrice...

Ali Khan also had an long term affair with beautiful German model,Countess Pilar von Goëss,descendant of Empress Maria Theresia,who in turn was na fiancee of Spyros Niarchos,brother of shipping magnate Stavros who gifted Queen Sophia those famous rubies called Niarchos rubies...But Aga Khan literally "stole" her from him...She died of brain tumor in 1999

Interesting fact is that his former wives were married before to nobleman:

Sarah Frances was previously married to Lord James Crichton-Stuart,son of Marquess of Bute...she later had an affair with Sir James Goldsmith,"playboy" and former husband of Dona Isabel Patino y de Bourbon,daughter of Maria Christina de Bourbon,Duchess de Durcal,descendant of the Spanish Royal family.Sir James Goldsmith also has 2 children with Laure Boulay de La Meurthe,granddaughter of Princess Isabelle d'Orleans(1900-1983),who is about the same age as Baroness Isabel de Rosnay,his daughter from his first marriage with Dona Isabel Patino y de Bourbon...

Not to speak about Gabriele,Prinzessin zu Leiningen,who was married to Prince Karl Emich zu Leiningen,who was stripped off his inheritance as a Head of the House of Leiningen because of her...Karl Emich was previously married to Princess Margarita von Hohenlohe-Oehringen and after Gabriele to Countess Isabelle von und zu Egolffstein.

She was born as Gabriele Renate Homey,later adopted the family name of Thyssen as her mother Renate Kerkhoff was at that time married to Bodo Thyssen,member of the Thyssen family and a cousin of Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemiscza de Kazson,whose daughter Francesca Anna Dolores married Karl,a Habsburg Heir...After Renate Bodo married Baroness Beatrice von Riedel.

I just wanted to show how many relations this family had/has with many other great families either through marriage or through their turbulent love affairs...
