Wife of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The daughter of a poet herself, Caitlin was born one year before Dylan Thomas. She spent her youth in Blashford, London, Ireland and Paris. She met Dylan for the first time in April 1936. They married on July 11, 1937 in Penzance, Cornwall. The following years were full of dramas caused by alcohol, economic difficulties and (mutual) infidelity. They had three children, Llewelyn (1939-2000; obituary on,,403809,00.html ), Aeron and Colm. After Dylan's death in 1953, she met a Sicilian film maker, Giuseppe Fazio, whom she married in 1957. They had a child together. Caitlin spent her last years in Catania, where she died in 1994.
