It is said that Mata Hari once had the capitals of Europe on her feet. Were ministers, advisers, princes and industrialists and generals all crazy about it? She was an undisputed dancer and a celebrity of her time.
Hussain and Jameel knew the art of persuading Mata Hari. She was famous for her semi-nude dancing. He had killed them all with his deeds. Wealth and all kinds of comforts were in his footsteps. Dance expert and outspoken Mata Hari had to work as a spy and double agent during the First World War and this was the reason for her death.
He was shot and executed on October 15, 1917, following his arrest and ‘charges’. It is known that Mata Hari forbade the firing squad from blindfolding her.
She was born in Leewarden, Netherlands. Margaret Zeila, of mixed race, was born in 1876 and is known as Mata Hari. It was a name derived from the Indonesian language where she lived with her husband after marriage at an early age. Her marriage did not last long and she ended the relationship and moved to France.
She was the daughter of a Dutch businessman who had married him to a military officer, but she was 26 when she broke up and moved to Paris. There, to fill her stomach, she resorted to her beauty and performances and started dancing in a club. Her beauty and semi-nude dance soon became known throughout Europe. And in later years, she was called a perfect dancer. But after a few years, her beauty and wealth began to wane, and she became embroiled in some debts that led her to spy on France during World War II.
A German diplomat persuaded him to provide French secrets to the German government. Mata Hari was interested in money. She could still easily access high-ranking French officials and army officers with her belongings.
When the series began, Mata Hari thought of raising money from the French intelligence agencies and offered to spy on them. French authorities at one time suspected that she was working for the Germans. However, French agencies gave him several missions and he continued to monitor them in which he proved to be an enemy of France and a double agent and he was arrested.
