#2. Edith Piaf had a daughter
Piaf had much tragedy in her life, including the death of her daughter at age 2 when she was 17.
Tragedyinspired the emotion she evoked from her ballad songs which have become French classics
including ‘La Vie en rose’, ‘Non, je ne regrette rien’ (No Regrets) and ‘Hymne à l’amour’. She is buried in
Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris next to her daughter – her grave is among the most visited and always
adorned with flowers.
