Celebrated Animal Trainer. She was known as "Claire Heliot and her 12 Lions" and had international fame in England and the USA. At the end of her shows she used to carry her lion "Sascha" across the stage - and the animal weighed 175 kg. In 1907, she was very seriously injured by one of her lions, ending her career. She later bought a farm. During the inflation in Germany, she lost everything. She died poor and nearly forgotten in an old people's home in Stuttgart, Germany.
