This chapter focuses on Margaretha Geertruida Zelle's new life in Paris after leaving her husband. Margaretha became a part of the demimonde—the working women, the theatrical women, singers, actresses, dancers, and prostitutes who traded in their “decency” for freedom over their own lives. She took the name Mata Hari and gave Paris its first genuinely fake Oriental temple dancer.

Keywords:   Mata Hari, Margaretha Geertruida Zelle, temple dancer
