Albert's lover, Caroline Otero (one of the most successful courtesans of her day being linked also with Edward VII, the Kings of Serbia & Spain and at least 2 Russian Grand Dukes), claimed he wasn't virile and suffered from erectile problems. Alice was rumored to have had an affair with Isidore de Lara, the English composer and singer. It was also rumored (I don't have any citation proof of it) that this caused her husband to slap her in view of an opera audience.

Thank you granduchessella!
I've read that Caroline Otero also had a relationship with one of the most famous writers of the history of Italy, Gabriele D'Annunzio.

According to Anne Edward's Grimaldis of Monaco,Isidore de Lara was born Isidore Cohen in London in 1859.  He was a piano prodigy.  After Albert I slapped the Princess de Monaco on the premiere night of Jules Massenet's opera Le Jongleur de Notre-Dame, she left the palace and requested an official separation in May 1902.  They never divorced, later in London she became a close friend of Queen Alexandra and was a hostess to one of the most glittering salons in London.  She and de Lara occupied two large suites in London's Claridge's Hotel until her death in 1926.

GD did she actually allude to erectile problems or was that an interpretation?

I'm looking for a portrait of Antoinette de Mérode, princess of Monaco (1828-1864)?

She was prince Charles III's wife and prince Albert I's mother.

But no way to find something else than this (rather bad) picture (a postage stamp...)



Do you know, by chance, a best picture of her? Thanx...
