Geneviève Lantelme (Portrait by Giovanni Boldini)


French stage actress, socialite, fashion icon, and courtesan, known as "Ginette."

Considered by her contemporaries to be one of the most beautiful women of the Belle Epoque, she is remembered for the mysterious circumstances of her death: on the night of 24/25 July 1911, she fell from the yacht of her husband, Alfred Edwards. A few days later her body was discovered in the waters of the Rhine River. The official verdict was that the actress had drowned as the result of a tragic accident. However, many people speculated that Edwards had murdered his wife.
