Ida Faubert born as Gertrude Florentine Felicitee Ida Salomon
Here is a picture of Ida Faubert who was born as Gertrude Florentine Félicitée Ida Salomon. She was the daughter of Haitian President daughter of Lysius Salomon
The daughter of a president of Haiti, Gertrude Florentine Félicitée Ida Salomon, is also known today by the name she took upon her second marriage, Ida Faubert. An infamous bit of information about her origins is the fact that her mother was the stepdaughter of her father. While the information was widely known, it wasn't acknowledged in public. Perhaps this origin story, as many such skeletons in family closets do, fueled the crucible that would inspire Faubert's illustrious career as a poet. Up to her death in 1969 Ida published many novels, many with deeply personal undertones such as the one about the death of her daughter who died still child.
