A COURT BEAUTY.
Story of a Remarkable Woman -of the
In all the radiant pageant of courts
no figure has moved with more queen
ly beauty and a more caiptivating
grace than Virginie, Countess Castig
lione, wiho for a few years in the mid
die of the last century dazzled the
world by her eharms and conquered
hearts by a glance, and few have
drunk more deeply of life's delights
and i,ts bitterness.
A romantic story tells us that the
peerless woman was dradled in a
farmhouse and spent her ea.rly years
in a rust-ic environment of cows and
hens, but in fact her origin was mucih
more exalted and less romanati.e. Vir
ginie first opened her beautiful eyes
in a Florentine palace. the daughter
of the Marquis Oldoini, an Italian
diplomat, and <his marchioness, one of
most graceful and charming women of
her day. Beauaty and rank were thus
her heritage and seldom has woman
turned thei to better account.
As a child she exhibited a rare
promise of loveliness and of that in
describab!e gift of fascination which
in later years made her supreme
among her sex. She was born to in
'spire ,the passion and devotion of men,
and before se had emerged from
short frocks she was besieged by
wooers. At twelve her beauty was
tihe talk of Flo-rence. When she ac

lowed by ai einbarassing retinue of
aihirers. She was. evenl at this ear
ly age. by universal assent the most
beautiful girl in Italy.
One day in 1854., so the story is
rold by Frederick Lollee, the youthful
fount Castiglione was present in
London at a reception given by the
duchess of Iverness, and as he gazed
at the galaxies of the beautiful women
around him he said to his friend
Cunt Walewski, "I suppose you do
not know what has broughit me to
London? I have come in search of a
wife." "My dear Gastiglione," the
count answered, "if that is so you
have made a great mistake in leaving
Italy. Go back, get an introduction to
the Marehioness Oldoin-i and win her
daughter. You will then have the
most beautiful wife in Europe."
The count followed this friendly
advice: fell hopelessly in love with
the fair Virginie the moment he set
eyes on her radiant young charms, and
after a brief wooing won her consena
to be his wife. But the g-irl'sheart was
far from accompanying her hand. "I
will marry you,'' she said, "because
my mother wishes, it. But remember
I do not love you. I shall never love
you. In fact I shall always be indiffer
ent to you.'"
It was unider such unpromising
conditions .that Virginie was led to
tihe altar, an unwilling and unhappy
bride, by the Count de Castiglione
young, handsome and rich, but of
weak character and dissipated ha,bits.
Such a husband could never inspire
respect. much less affection, in the
proud, strong-willed young beauIty.
She owed him no allegiance, and she
never gave it. Even before the honey
moon had waned she set the count at
defiance. In vain he -implored her to
pay the bridal visit, prescribed by
custom, to his mother. She refused
I point blank.
Seeing ,that appeals and commands
were alike useless he determined to
conquer by artifice. One day he invit
ed his wife to'accompa-ny him on a
drive, seeretly bidding the coachman
to take them to this mother's house.
Virginie showed no sign of suspicion
until the carriage was crossing khe
river and her destination became
clear. Then, taking off one of her
shoes, she flung it into the wa;ter, say
ing triumphantly: "Now take me
bck. 1 can't enter your mother's
barefoot.'' And back the count had
to take 'the pretty rebel..
M. Lollee paints a oharming pic
ture of Virginie at this period of heir
life. Her blue eyes had a magic sof,t
ness, 'her brown hair, rich and abund
ant, clustered round the pure lines of
her brow; the arms and shoulders
had an indesacriba,ble grace in their
exquisite curves; the dainty dimpled
hin, the lovely parted lips, like an
opening crimson flower, appeared to
invite a caress. Even more beautiful
if possible, was 'ber figure, wvhich was
faultless in i.ts symmetry and its
grace of outline; while her arms and
hands, in their perfect modeling, were
the despair of sculptors.
Such was the Countess Castiglione
when she stood on the threshold of
womanhood. the most peerless of her
sex, not. only in Ita-ly, but in all Eu
rope: and her personal charm and in
telligence were at least equal to her
physical perfection. Wife though she
now was, she was constantly sur
rounded by lovers, including King
Vitor Emmanuel himself, the, most
indefatigable of them all, to whom
s:he dispensed .her smiles and favors
witih a charming abandon, whice
drove her husband to distraction. She
was a born queen of hearts, anid right
rvally she played the role.
Cavour, Victor Emmanuel 's minis
ter, was the first to discover in the
countess, other gifts .t:han t.hose of
beauty. XWh her subtle intellect and
her r'are gift of making men the
slaves of her will, she would make an
ideal diplomatist.; and- he had little
difficulty in inducing her' to g. sto
Paris in this character, to throw her
spell over. Napoleon and enlist his aid
in liberating Italy. It was a mission
which made an irresistible appeal to
the countess' amblitionl. S':e wvol be
