Edda Ciano's alleged affairs

Post by DavidFrankenberg » 02 Dec 2020 22:33

Hi,

Her husband was famous for his numerous alleged affairs with other women... but, looks like that Edda too was the subject of such gossips :

here https://www.scmp.com/magazines/post-mag ... -hong-kong is said that she had an affair with a Chinese Lord of War while in Hong Kong :
Her lengthiest liaison was with Chang Hsueh-liang, the "Young Marshal" of Manchuria. A handsome, game-for-anything playboy (and former heroin addict), "Peter" Chang - as he was known within his wide circle of foreign friends - and the vivacious, free-wheeling Edda hit it off very well. So well, in fact, that the latter spent months at a time in Hong Kong, discreetly and apparently ecstatically ensconced at the Repulse Bay Hotel with Chang and his entourage.
Edda was the daughter of Mussolini and the wife of Galeazzo Ciano. Ciano was at the time consul in Shanghai from 1930 till 1935.

I seriously doubt about this liaison. Is it really serious ?
