Swedish-born writer Baron Bror von Blixen-Finecke (1886-1946) married his Danish second-cousin Karen Blixen in 1913. Also a writer, Karen is more widely known by the pen name Isak Dinesen, and is perhaps most famous for her memoir, Out of Africa (1937), which was also adapted for film in 1985. She married the Baron following a failed relationship with his twin-brother, Hans.
In 1914 the Blixens moved to Kenya where they bought a coffee plantation. Bror -- an accomplished huntsman -- also ran a safari business, which catered to high-profile clients. However following Bror's infidelity the couple separated in 1921 and were divorced four years later. The Baron returned to Sweden in 1938 and was killed in a car crash at the age of 59.
