|Mata Hari on her wedding day with her bridesmaids|
No one really knows anything about the bridesmaids, as details about that day have been lost to history. That day showed little sign of the exotic dancer and queen of espionage Margaretha Zelle was to become in the future. On her wedding day she wore white and carried a bouquet just as any other traditional bride of her Victorian era. This picture also does not quite show her stature, as Mata Hari was a woman 5' 10" in height.
I hope to have more posts about Victorian-era brides and wives in the future.
