Marie-Louise, Mrs Lionel de Rothschild (née Beer) (1892-1975)

Marie-Louise, (Marie-Lou) Beer was born in France, the daughter Edmond Beer. Her sister Nelly had married Robert de Rothschild in 1907, and in 1912 she married Lionel de Rothschild (1882-1942). The wedding, in Paris, was held in private, as she was in mourning for her father, who had died earlier that year. The couple lived at Exbury from 1919, and in London, at 18, Kensington Palace Gardens. They had four children; Rosemary, Edmund, Naomi and Leopold.
