Born: Audrey Kathleen Ruston
Her mother, Ella van Heemstra, was a Dutch Baroness (which made Audrey a Blue Blood) while her father, Joseph Victor Anthony Ruston was born in Bohemia with English and Australian decent. Her parents divorced when she was just a child, so she moved to England and then the Netherlands with her mother. At the time that she lived there, Nazis took over her country and this led Audrey to depression and malnutrition.
