Beatrice Rothschild’s groom gave her an STD that rendered her infertile and caused her to be bedridden for a year and a half.  The audio guide provided on the tour of her Italian Villa discretely revealed that her husband gave her “something”  that made her unable to have children.  Most likely gonorrhea.  Needless to say, theirs was an unhappy marriage.  Beatrice eventually adjusted and her pets, which included monkeys, dogs and a mongoose, became her children.  She even created the wedding of the year for two of her dogs that was attended by other pets and their owners; all dressed to the nines in the height of gilded age fashion.
