Bigamy

Benito Mussolini married Ida Dalser sometime in 1914 at a church in Milan. She was the daughter of the mayor of Sopramonte, and had been supporting him financially. Not long after however, they became estranged, but they never divorced. This didn't stop Mussolini marrying Rachele Guidi in December 1915, with whom he was to have five children. After becoming the Italian leader Mussolini tried to erase Ida from history and she was confined to a mental hospital.

In 1922 24-year-old Theresa Vaughn was tried for bigamy in England. In five years she had accumulated 62 husbands.

Conman Giovanni Vigliotto had at least 104 bigamous marriages around the world before he was jailed in 1983. A court in Phoenix, Arizona, sentenced him to 28 years for fraud and bigamy, but he died, aged 61, in 1991.
