L'Aerolia is the girl expelled from Belgium by Cwen Elizabeth and the
royal cabinet for the reason that she unconsciously fascinated King Albert
and was kissed by him. The Gaby Deslys affair is still fresh In the minds
of European statesmen, and, though the whole Incident was clearly explain
ed, the queen and diplomas of Belgium insisted that the only thing to do
I with the little dancer was to get her just as far out of the way as possible.
Not on auy account should It become possible for the history of Portugal
to be repeated in Belgium, with another young sovereign and another charm
ing danseuse as the two principal characters In the story.
L'Aerolia is half French and half Spanish. Her mother is a dancer known
In Paris and throughout Europe as Madame Amelia, and her fathPr, Henrico
Doradora. was an officer in the Spanish army. L'Aerolia began dancing on
the stage and at fashionable private entertainments when she was only a lit
tle child and early acquired remarkable proficiency in her art. She Is of strik
