History Few people know Marguerite Alibert, because she has never been a public person. At a young age, she led a wandering lifestyle, was a prostitute and gave birth to a child by an unknown man. But later she managed to attract the attention of the English prince himself, and even marry another representative of the aristocracy.

What else Marguerite became famous for and why, after the murder of her husband, she managed to "get away with it", read in our material.

Marguerite Alibert, also known as Maggie Moeller was born in Paris on December 9, 1890 in the family of a coachman and a cleaner. Marguerite's childhood can hardly be called "cloudless": when her younger brother was four years old, he died under the wheels of a truck. Marguerite was blamed for the boy's death, as she was supposed to look after her brother, but she did not look…

As a result, the parents sent their daughter to boarding school, where she studied until the age of 16. In parallel, the future princess worked as a servant in the house next door, but soon she was literally thrown out into the street from everywhere, as she became pregnant by an unknown man.

Despite the condemnation from society, Marguerite decided to keep the child. In the photo above, she is pictured with her daughter Raymonda. The girl was subsequently sent somewhere to a farm in France.

Marguerite was left without a roof over her head and without means of livelihood. To somehow make ends meet, she got a job at the Maison de Rendez-vous brothel, which belonged to the famous Madame Denart. This institution became famous for accepting mostly only rich clients and representatives of the elite.

The owner of the brothel quickly saw the girl's talent, so she decided to make her the number one prostitute.

When Marguerite was 17 years old, she met her first husband and took his surname Meller. But as it turned out later, at the time of their acquaintance, he was already married, so technically the girl still remained Alibert.

A rich boyfriend bought an apartment for her and showered her with gifts, but their relationship did not last too long. Already in 1913 they broke up. According to one version, the reason for the breakup was infidelity on the part of Marguerite.

The girl continued to work in a brothel, because by that time she had already established a reputation as a high-class courtesan. But in 1917, she had a new novel. This time, Marguerite's chosen one was Prince Edward VIII himself, who then served in the British army stationed in France during the First World War.

Eduard had just turned 23, and he had no serious experience with girls. Therefore, friends decided to give him a little "lesson" and hired the best prostitute from Madame Denart's brothel for this. As you may have guessed, it was Marguerite.

The prince liked the girl so much that a stormy romance immediately began between them. However, the passion passed as quickly as it arose: after a year of communication Alibert with the heir to the English throne has stopped.

But Marguerite was not too upset, because she was courted by enough rich men. The cavaliers literally showered the girl with luxurious gifts and trinkets. True, she always wanted more... and in 1921 she had the opportunity to provide for herself for the rest of her life.

That's when Marguerite Alibert was introduced to the Egyptian Prince Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey. Then the girl accompanied a rich businessman, but the prince was so fascinated by her beauty that it did not bother him at all.

It should be clarified that Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey was not really a prince. He received the noble title of "Bey" only because of his wealth.

After meeting with Marguerite , Ali returned to Cairo and continued to have fun for a while. It was rumored that the millionaire was very fond of expensive cars, yachts and gambling. And in 1922, he organized a meeting with a girl and declared that he could not live without her. After receiving a marriage proposal from the prince, Marguerite hesitated for a long time, but eventually gave her consent.

The wedding ceremony was held according to Islamic traditions. However, the partners signed a prenuptial agreement, which stated that Marguerite would be able to wear Western clothes and had the right to terminate the marriage at any time. That's just shortly before the wedding, this clause from the contract mysteriously disappeared, but instead there was a note that Prince Ali can marry several women.

Nevertheless, the wedding took place, and Marguerite voluntarily converted to Islam. However, the marriage of a prostitute and a prince could hardly be called happy. Ali wanted his wife to obey him in everything, and for the freedom-loving, independent and liberated Marguerite, this was an almost impossible task.

Later, she said that her husband repeatedly raised his hand to her, they regularly quarreled, argued, sometimes it happened in front of passers-by. In addition, doctors once removed the beatings that Marguerite allegedly inflicted on her beloved husband ... And it was also rumored that Ali preferred to have sex with her par la derrière (from the back entrance). This even gave rise to rumors about the prince's sadistic and homosexual tendencies.

An unhappy marriage with an Egyptian tyrant came to its logical conclusion on July 9, 1923. On that day, the couple stayed at the Savoy Hotel in London, where the exhibition "The Happy Widow" was held. Their quarrel began in the restaurant and smoothly flowed into the room. And in the morning, the porters heard three shots coming from there. It was Marguerite Alibert who fired several bullets at her husband from a Browning 32-caliber semi-automatic pistol.

It seemed that her fate was sealed — the death penalty awaited the woman. But not everything is so simple! After 10 weeks of trial, Marguerite was found not guilty, writing off her husband's murder as self-defense. Is it because she was represented by one of the best lawyers of those times Edward Marshall Hall, either because Marguerite kept about 20 letters from Prince Edward, which contained not only intimate details of their relationship, but also criticism of the English king.

In any case, Marguerite was acquitted and soon released. The woman moved to Paris, where she settled in an apartment overlooking the Ritz and lived there for the rest of her life. Up until the age of 80, Alibert continued to carry the title of princess and charm rich men to support her.

By the way, after the murder trial, Marguerite even tried to file a lawsuit against her late husband's family in order to inherit his money and property, but the court rejected it.
