Throughout history, we find those rare couples who actually like each other (most of the time). Sometimes, their crazy in love and other times, just plain crazy. These couples took their love straight to the grave, or others along with them. Here’s the rundown.
Marc Anthony and Cleopatra: So, Julius Caesar is dead; and Octavian, now the Emperor Augustus, is telling the citizens of Rome that Marc is sleeping with the enemy. And instead of riding back into Rome to defend his honor, Marc stays with Cleopatra to raise an army against the Roman legions. Well, Augustus has raised a successful enough campaign against Marc Anthony to waltz into Egypt and take it over. In retaliation, Marc Anthony and Cleopatra commit suicide.
Years later, another famous couple will also commit suicide, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun except you know, the fact that Marky Mark, Hitler was a psychopath.
King Henry VIII and his 100 Wives: Henry had his six wives, few of which reached old age, thanks to Henry’s inability to produce a strong male heir to succeed him. His obsession with finding a woman fertile enough to produce a male heir, you know, because the sperm has nothing to do with it, lead to some dark freaky places in English History. But it was Henry’s baby Mama Drama that lead to such events as the Protestant Reformation and the rise of one of England’s most popular rulers, Bloody Mary.
Peter and Catherine the Great (in the Bedroom): Peter along with his forth wife, the waitress Catherine, were both notorious for extra material affairs. But both were pretty open about it even after Catherine produced a son with another dude. And Catherine severed the Empire of Russia well for the next four years after Peter’s death until her death in bed after a stroke. But rumor spread that she died after….after…the reigns broke on her horse.Read more here, http://www.history.com/news/8-things-you-didnt-know-about-catherine-the-great
In 1993, according to http://www.planetdolan.com/8-horrifying-sex-deaths/2/, a suicide note left by Animal Trainer Hannibal Cantori, reveals that the reason for the murder suicide of him and is wife was triggered by Cantori finding his wife in their stable going all Animal Channel with one of the horses. It shows a horse long tradition with the fascination of stable related deaths.
Rosanna McCoy and Johnson Hatfield: part of the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud between two rival families who lived on adjacent sides of a big ass river. The young couple decided that screwing each other was a nice change a pace. But, in 1881, Johnson decided to ditch the pregnant Rosanna and married his cousin instead; but not before some good old fashioned killing each other took place due to humping.
One could see this as a modern day Romeo and Juliet love story, but less romantic.
Marie and Pierre Curie: Famous lab rats who revolutionized the way we study and understand radioactivity that won them both the Nobel Peace prize. But, at the price of years of unregulated exposure to both of their demises.
And so first fell Pierre, and some years later Marie, but only before winning another Nobel Prize for Chemistry. But before Pierre’s Death, they would produce a daughter that would become the wife of another famous Science dual who will also win the Nobel Prize.
In contrast, Mary Wollstonecraft, a famous writer and advocate of woman’s right would fall in love with the radical Political philosopher William Godwin; and die after giving birth to a daughter who would later become Marry Shelly, famous writer of Frankenstein and woman’s advocate who married the radical poet, Percy Shelly.
Will and Ariel Durant: Famous Historians who wrote the ridiculously thick collection of Western Civilization titled: The Story of Civilization that runs in 11 volumes. Will was also super into Philosophy, writing and teaching that crap as well. But a month after Ariel’s Death, Will died as well.
And yet nothing beats the mathematically precise death of Math Gods, George Szekeres and Esther Klein who died only an hour apart on August 28, 2005.
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow: Famous bank robbers and criminals everyone knows about from the Great Depression or something. They died riddled in bullets. Watch the 1967 classic or the History Channel if you wanna know dates.
But Bonnie and Clyde, like the 1967 classic film, are tame compared to the English couple Fred and Rosemary West who turned their 1970’s swingers palace into both a whore house and a house of horrors; that included prostitution, incest and the murder of several woman.
