Parting of the ways

The April 18 1934 Toronto Daily Star contained photographs of the Prince and Princess di Siriggnano, whose marriage fell apart after only five days.


Google searches revealed that their surname was actually “di Sirignano”. The couple apparently got married within 24 hours of his arrival in America.

Unfortunately, the stories of both the Prince and Princess had a tragic ending. He died in a car accident five months later. She married again in 1934, and had three children, but fell to her death from a hotel balcony in New York in 1943.
