Happy Birthday, Mata!

Margaretha Geertruida Zelle, Lady MacLeod, or H21, dancer, seducer spy or scapegoat, the woman best known as Mata Hari (eye if the day) was born 8/7/1876.
Her life led her about Europe and, in a failed marriage to Indonesia. Her penchant for military men in a time of war had her burning a candle from both ends & she wound up on the wrong side of a firing squad at 41.
