#Ghislaine Maxwell : Her rise like a PHOENIX
[and a boyfriend from her past ]
The Year 2000: Prince Andrew by her side front and center at Ralph Lauren
“Incredibly, they have rebuilt another fortune on the smoking ruins of the first.”

“Robert Maxwell saw himself as Britain’s Joseph P. Kennedy, the patriarch of a dynasty that would wield financial and political power on a global scale, he expected much of his children”
So her father, dreamed that one day his young Ghislaine would marry JFK JR ... and Ghislaine became close to him and attended the Kennedy Family Weddings ...
[ a side note : keep in mind that Andrew denied meeting #Epstein until much later. Yet, he knew Ghislaine and she was with #Epstein in 1992.]
“She was unable to accept her father’s guilt and likely suicide and insists to this day that a dark conspiracy of Mossad renegades and Sicilian contract killers took his life.”

This article was written in 2000.
So we see a socialite, a woman born in privilege. We see her cast aside as the children are made to pay for the sins of the father ...
“He is very, very rich and as much as he enjoys making it, he seems to have no problem spending it, either. He has provided Ghislaine a lot of the security and confidence she was missing when her father died and she has provided him with a lot of prestige.”
And rise She and her siblings did.

“Robert Maxwell was fond of warning his children: “Confidence is like virginity. You can only lose it once.” His children, however, appear to have recovered theirs.”
But let’s take a look at a former boyfriend: Count Gianfranco Cicogna
m.news24.com/Archives/Witne… “KLERKSDORP — Maria Christina Cicogna Mozzoni walked slowly across blackened veld on Saturday afternoon, picking up little pieces of the plane in which her husband was killed hours earlier.”

He was the son of Guiseppe Ascanio Cicogna Mozzoni. He was the nephew of the famous Countess Marina Volpi Cicogna ... the family owned the Ciga Hotels
Here are a few of their properties

They literally owned THE GRAND HOTEL
And the Count ( Of course ) was an ambassador for the Knights of Malta to Africa. Here he is in Rome in 2011. The meeting concerned humanitarian aid to Kenya.
#Ghislaine had such interesting friends. They were quite concerned for the future of Africa...
Another interesting member of this family, and one well known in high society and the art and film world was his Tante, Countess Marina Cicogna. ( seen here with Helmut Berger )
“Elizabeth Taylor, Helmut Berger, Cicogna, Bolkan and Richard Burton on the Christina, Aristotle Onassis’s yacht, 1967; a view of the Grand Canal from the Peggy Guggenheim Museum; Cicogna at age 16 at the Beistegui Ball in Venice; with Brigitte Bardot in St. Tropez in 1966.”
And here she is with her friend Maria! “Cicogna with the artist Marina Abramovic (who had suffered an eye injury when a brick fell on her in Venice) at the Cipriani Hotel on Torcello.”
nytimes.com/2013/10/31/t-m… “The Italian countess Marina Cicogna has lived her life on her own terms — photographing her jet-set companions, winning highest honors at the Venice Film Festival and throwing parties that are still talked about decades later.”
#Ghislaine came very close to becoming a Countess...
A Pinterest share of photos of the Beistegui Ball you can see the Countess attending above. pinterest.com/paperfaberge/b…
Just a an interesting photo from the Ball in 1951 “3 femmes masquées, Bal Beistegui à Venise. 3 septembre 1951”
scalaregia.blogspot.com/2009/01/was-in… “was in the late summer of 1951 that Charles de Beistegui gave is famous costume ball.
The Beistegui Ball, that stands in social history as one of the - if not the - most famous balls of the 20th century, took place in Charlie's spectacular Palazzo Labia”
Could she have held her own in that family ? prabook.com/web/mobile/#!p…
Yet here we are ... looking into the backstory of a woman whose visits to Royal homes were in the middle of the night...
