Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi: Family and Background

As Eugenie's husband has the thread about his family (and that thread was set before he became Eugenie's husband), I think Edoardo also deserves the same.

Here there are basic informations about his closest family:

Count Edoardo Alessandro M Mapelli Mozzi (known as Edo) was born in Westminster, 1st November, 1983, son of Count Alessandro (Alex) Mapelli Mozzi, and his former wife the former Nicola D. Burrows. He has an elder sister Natalia Alice, born in 1981, wife of Mr Tod Yeomans.

His father, who was born in 1951, is a British Olympian, an Alpine skier, took part in several events at the 1972 Olympic Games.

Edo's grandfather was Count Gian Paolo Mapelli Mozzi (1922-80), Italian aristocrat, who married Gigliola Stoppani. Count Gian Paolo was a son of Count Luigi Mapelli Mozzi (1894-1948), who married Nobile Maria Mercedes Baroli.

Count Luigi was a son of Count Paolo Mapelli Mozzi (1854-1921), who married Enrichetta Tarsis dei Conti di Castel d'Agogna (1866-1941). Count Paolo was the son of Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi (1815-79) who married Nobile Ippolita Giulino dei Conti di Vialba.

The Mapelli Mozzi name came about from the marriage of Count Alessandro's father, Nobile Gerolamo Mapelli (1785-1842) with Angela Mozzi.

Edo's mother married as her second husband Christopher M.H. Shale, a British businessman and Conservative politician, friend of former prime minister David Cameron. Mr Shale died from natural causes at Glastonbury, in June, 2011. Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and their parents the Duke and Duchess of York attended Mr Shale's funeral.

Edo has a half-brother, Albemarle Christopher M.H. Shale, ten years his junior.

The Mapelli Mozzi family have several connections to the British aristocracy. Edo's cousin, Edward Ankarcrona, son of Countess Margaretha Mapelli Mozzi, married in 2006, Lady Lucinda Savile, a daughter of the Earl and Countess of Mexborough.

Although he enjoys the title of "Count" he is a British subject and technically cannot use a foreign title in this country. Foreign styles and titles were confined to those who received a Royal Warrant from King George V in 1932.

It is reported that Edo has a two-year-old son, Christopher Woolf "Wolfie", from a previous relationship.

I suppose the family is Catholic, as most Italian families are, but is he?

What school did he attend?


I don't think we can say he enjoys the title of Count. In Italy, if he has an Italian passport, the nobility was abolished and the titles are not officially used or recognised. In the UK, his family's title is not recognised thus he is an untitled commoner.

Anyone knows something more about his career, education, etc. they let it post here.

I wonder if Natalia and Ted Yeomans have children; Albemarle Christopher Shale is probably single.

When he had a family member die (grandfather?) years ago was the funeral Church of England? I remember someone said The Yorks were present.

I posted this on the engagement forum but I guess it belongs here:

We know Edo is Italian and English but for the Danish readers of this forum, his father's maternal grandmother, Betty (Jeppesen) Stoppani, was born in Thisted, Denmark on 28 August 1896.

Here's a link to her baptismal record:
Thisted parish, Hundborg, Thisted - Churchbooks

Edo's father Alex was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but attended Downside School in Somerset [Downside is a Catholic boarding school]. Alex's mother, Countess Gigliola Mapelli Mozzi and his grandmother, Betty Stoppani, also moved to England at that time, and lived at Park House, Bridge End, Warwick.

Source: The Coventry Evening Telegraph, 3 September 1970 (available in Findmypast).

Apparently the Countess and Alex's father Count Gian lived apart. Gian was still alive when Alex married Edo's mother in 1978. At that time he lived in Ponte San Pietro, Bergamo, Italy while Countess Gigliola still lived at Park House.

Apparently his father Alex was raised Catholic but I don't know about Edo. I don't believe his mother is Catholic.

If he attended a Catholic school, that would mean it is possible he follows the faith of his Italian ancestors.
That would make the Princess the most senior (high in succession) British royal to marry a Catholic, right?

Edo's father attended the Catholic school.

But I don't think his mother is Catholic which means Edo might not be.

Edo was born in 1st November 1983.
He looks so young I cannot believe will be 36-years in two months.

I am so happy for both of them. And I'm looking forward to another Royal Wedding.

Isn't Gigliola Mapelli-Mozzi Italian having been born in Rome so there's a strong possibility that she was raised RC not that it really matters what denomination she is.

Yes, Edo's grandmother Gigliola Mapelli Mozzi was probably Catholic.

But I don't think Edo's mother Nikki is. She's English, not Italian.

BTW - Gigliola was born in Milan, Italy 11 January 1926, the daughter of Onoro Stoppani and Betty (nee Jeppesen). Here's a link to her 1956 immigration card (with photograph). You'll need to create a free account to view it:

Yes I doubt Nikki Shale is RC though I'm not 100% on that.
