TILLY LOSCH ' SCHLAGOBERS' SWEET FRAGMENTS FROM HER LIFE 

CATHERINE AND TILLY : PORCHEY CARNARVON'S TWO DUPED WIVES

Tilly Losch ( 1903-1975) the Austrian born dancer, choreographer, actress and painter lived and worked for most of her life in USA and Britain, although she began her career in her native Austria. Tilly ( born Ottilie Ethel Leopoldine Losch) is not yet the subject of a full length published biography, especially one that draws on her personal papers and memorabilia at The University of Binghamton, New York State, USA.  To help to fill this gap, in 2013, William Cross, the British Society biographer compiled a long biographical sketch of Tilly’s life and times for his book “ Catherine and Tilly: Porchey Carnarvon’s Two Duped Wives” The Tragic Tales of the Sixth Countesses of Carnarvon. This new shorter compilation "Tilly Losch  'Schlagobers' Sweet Fragments From Her Life"  adds a few further facts and stories recording parts of Tilly’s remarkable life and some of the people she knew. Describing herself as an 'Actress, Dancer and Artist', ( which is the inscription on her grave stone )   Tilly’s story and her legacy deserves to be much better known about across the globe. The UK based  biographer William Cross, FSA Scot, author of eight books on  men and woman ( mainly whose stories have been overlooked ) plans to add other titles to this end about Tilly Losch ( who was briefly the Sixth Countess of Carnarvon).   For further details contact the Author William Cross, by e-mail williecross@virginmedia.com

Porchey Carnarvon, Highclere Castle’s Sixth Earl of Carnarvon married twice. First, in 1922, he wooed an American-born beauty named Catherine Wendell and secondly, in 1939, he persuaded the well-known Austrian ballet dancer, turned actress, Tilly Losch to the altar, well, at least to the Registry Office.   When they married Porchey, ( who was a life long flirt and sex pest ) the two women were vulnerable and penniless. Their marital capitulation into the chore of being Porchey’s bed mate was nothing to do with his looks or magnetic sex appeal or of being wonderfully romanced, it was instead all down to acquiring a husband who was better off than they were financially. Socially both women made an impact on many men, they were no angels. Whilst Porchey made reasonable husband material on grounds of title, money and property neither relationship was a love match and both women were duped by their family and friends into risking the holy state of matrimony. The marriages proved hell holes for the women. Porchey was an egotist and regularly unfaithful and cruel. Catherine turned to alcohol and suffered a series of nervous breakdowns. She tried to kill herself. Tilly escaped to America after just ten weeks as Highclere’s chatelaine, whilst Porchey lined up his next Countess.  This is the story of how these two women caught in the trap of being Porchey’s wife overcame the abuses, and their own personal tragedies and health scares, to find inner happiness. Catherine eventually found peace with a man who loved her. Tilly  (always the more public and charismatic of Porchey’s wives) became an amateur artist, whilst continuing to ply her trade as one of the iconic symbols of the 20th Century.
