Galeazzo Ciano
Birth: Mar. 18, 1903
Provincia di Livorno
Toscana, Italy
Death: Jan. 11, 1944
Provincia di Verona
Veneto, Italy

Italian Diplomat. Early into his adulthood he entered into a diplomatic career, married Italian leader Benito Mussolini's daughter Edda in 1930, and became Italy's Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1936. He helped to create the Rome-Berlin Axis and the military pact with Germany, and was in part responsible for the attack on Greece in 1940. In 1943 Ciano was dismissed as Foreign Minister and made ambassador to the Vatican. At the meeting of the Fascist Grand Council that preceded his father-in-law's dismissal by the king in 1943, Ciano voted against Mussolini. He was later arrested by the Germans, transferred to the Fascist authorities in Northern Italy, and executed for high treason. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
