Another aristocrat, who enjoys to be an actor:

Urbano Riario Sforza Barberini Colonna di Sciarra

His mother was beautiful Princess Myrta Barberini, whom both King Juan Carlos of Spain and King Albert II of the Belgians fell in love with.

Does anyone have any updates or photos on the Ruspoli family? - Maria Pia Ruspoli or her daughter Giacinta Ruspoli.

I read in Part 1 of this thread of a woman here in Mass. called Contessa Aurora Fraggianni who was having a movie put out about her in 2004 also a biography of her was being written and was to be out in the Autumn of 2004. Has anyone any information on this movie and/or book ?
There seemed to be a lot of controversy about this woman from Natick (I think) but I would like to know more of what ever became of this.... any clues?

I have read more and dug up more on this Countessa Fragianni. It is an interesting story but is it all legal? I thought that in our US Courts it is illegal to impersonate a royal. I may be wrong, I am not sure. I do know this story seems really like a colander....full of holes.

Thanks, tunney11. I did find them. They're great ! I love the way the Rothschild women dress, especially in the seventies. They had a style all their own, conservative and flamboyant at the same time, whis is hard to achieve, but when you look back, it still jaw-dropping. And I think Olimpia fitted right in. I wonder if she influenced the Rothschild women or they influenced her. A little bit of both probably.
Also, Eva Green's dress at the recent Rothschild party was fabulous !
I cannot enlarge the pictures on my screen. It says I need to register. Do you, or someone, have clippings of Olimpia's wedding that you could scan ? Or any picture you find of Olimpia, in larger format than the one available on Isifa ?
Thanks a million !

Olympia de Rothschild-Isifa
You do not have to be a member to enlarge the photos on Isifa.
For example, after you search Rothschild, and get a list of stamp size photos..Hit the down arrow under left side of the photo, then it will bring up a little larger photo,... then double click the photo & it will enlarge a bit.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much tunney11! Olimpia must be one or two years old than princess Caroline, and looks like as if she was her mother. Too bad she hasn't aged well! She was so beautiful when young!

Olympia de Rothschild
Olympia wears very littile makeup. In addition, her oldest child was born in the late 1970's with perm medical problems ( I think blind) so mabye the stess and worry of that has aged her.

It's too bad, because from 1974 to about 1981 she was in the fashion magazines alot (WWD, Vogue..front row at the Paris fashion shows,top parties in Paris) and was on the International Best Dressed list. I read that after the illness of the daughter she withdrew from public life, & maybe lost interest dessing up.

Princess Blazena Torlonia with daughter Caterina Agnese and a guest attended an event in Rome. If I'm correct they must be related to American actress Brooke Shields.

Urbano Barberini???
Hi there! Does anyone have any information on Urbano Barberini? I have seen him in several films over the years, but have not been able to find much information about him on the web at all. I have found him listed as a Prince, but generally when you look him up, he is not titled. Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
