Many people know the story of Mata Hari. She has born in Netherland. Her aspiration was to become a teacher in a children’s school (meaning a primary school). Her name at that time was Margaretha Zelle. While in school, she fell in love with the headmaster. She was then expelled from school. In this topic, I will share about Mata Hari: The exotic dancer.
A few years later, she fell in love with a captain twenty years older than her. After marriage she was went to Java, Indonesia.
That relationship did not last long. From that marriage she had two children. One died of poisoning and another miraculously survived. Who gave the poison is also a mystery. Many people suspect probably any of her boyfriends had done that.
She separated herself and started her carrier as a dancer. The new name was Mata Hari. She used to dance mainly in army halls. From Paris to Berlin she was famous for her dance. Her reputation spread all over Europe. She used to dance wearing only designer underwear. Critics say she did not master the art of dance. Slim, slender breasts, lean body mass and sexuality were the main attractions of her dance.
All the military officers and high-ranking officers in Europe at that time were eager to establish relations with her.
Shaking all over Europe, at last, the dancer was captured by French soldiers. She was said to have been a German spy in the guise of a dancer during World War I. Mata Hari was an Indonesian word. This means the morning sun.
One morning the French government executed her in a firing squad. She was wearing a fashionable gown and phase hat when she was taken to the death stage. She did not allow the black cloth to block his eyes before firing; because that black band did not match her dress. She was 41 then.
Mata Hari is still discussed. Details of her spy activity were not known. The most common information about her is that she was a German spy, as I mentioned earlier. She roamed freely in the European army camps. She was able to easily establish relations with the allied forces. She used to smuggle information and that why she can be called the ‘Queen of Europe’. In exchange for the body, she built relationships with top government officials.
However, her sexuality, beautiful body, and reckless life are still discussed. Many movies have been made about him in Hollywood and Europe. The main theme of movies is Mata Hari’s sex appeal and thrilling sex life.
