About Adel "LEDA" Diosy

Our family tie to Adel is through her mother Cecille Stern of Nagyborad who died 3 July 1907. Family lives were certainly entwined for as well as a brief mention in an Oradean news paper of 29 Jan 1896 recording that Adel’s cousin Berta Guttmann (daughter of her uncle Albert and aunt Amelia) had been the first choice of her intended husband Diósy Ödön. Berta Guttmann’s brother Béla was also recorded attending the wedding of Adolf Hecht & Irén Rosenthal at The Black Eagle in the Nagyvárad on 6th January 1898 where he escorted Adel’s sister Berta Brüll to the ceremony

For some reason Ade’s marriage to local lawyer and Ödön Diosy’s (which one newspaper wrote took place in a private house on 30 November 1898). My feelings are that it was a sham marriage to facilitate a far more complex relationship between three individuals, for soon afterwards, Adel became the mistress of Ady Endré who subsequently became one of Hungary’s most famous poets. Although Ady Endre’s letters never confirm a troalistic relationship, it is clear that Adel, Ödön Diosy and Ady were an almost inseparable threesome, travelling together and living the high life in Paris and on the French and Italian Riviera. During those years, a somewhat besotted Ady Endré composed many love poems to Adel, the most famous being ‘Léda’ a reversal of her name.

Adel and Ady Endre eventually parted and Adel converted to Catholicism and legitimately married Ödön Diosy on 6th November 1922. But the romantic story of Adel and Ady Endre still lives on and star struck lovers of literature still return their respective graves to lay flowers
