The marquis and his fiancee

The February 22 1923 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this photograph:


The Marquis (usually spelled Marques) de Casa Maury and Paula Gellibrand got married in 1923, and were divorced in 1932. (He later married Freda Dudley Ward, who was the mistress of the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII, from 1918 to 1934.) Ms. Gellibrand married four times in total, and was once described as “the most beautiful woman in Europe”.

Google searches turned up these photographs of him and her.
