More information

She was born in Paris, possibly the daughter of Austrian landscape artist Carl (also Karl) Freiherr von Merode (1853–1909). Genealogists are still not sure whether or how she was related to the Merode noble family. At the age of eight, Cléo was sent to study dance and made her professional debut at age eleven.



Cléo de Mérode became renowned for her glamour even more than for her dancing skills, and her image began appearing on such things as postcards and playing cards. A particular new hairstyle she chose to wear became the talk of Parisian women and was quickly adopted as a popular style for all.
