The poor Dionne Quintuplets were forced into doing a lot of publicity. First they were separated from their own family at the ages of two months old and then after a lot of trials, they were reunited with their family at the ages of nine and then their brothers and sisters were jealous of them and later on the remaining girls wrote a book telling how their father and their eldest brother molested them. Marie, who was the smallest of the five was treated the worst. Her mother called her stupid and cross eyed and since she was left handed she tried to force Marie into writing and using her right hand. None of the married sister stayed married and Emile died at the age of eighteen from a seizure. She was diagnosed at the age of twelve with epilepsy. And Marie died at the age of thirty from a heart attack. One of the sister never married, as far as I know, there are only two remaining sisters.
Now I have to find out more..
