Biography

Lil Dagover (German: [lil ˈdaː.ɡo.vɐ] (listen); born Marie Antonia Siegelinde Martha Seubert; 30 September 1887 – 23 January 1980) was a German actress whose career spanned between 1913 and 1979. She was one of the most popular and recognized film actresses in the Weimar Republic.

Early Life

Lil Dagover was born Marie Antonia Siegelinde Martha Seubert in Madiun, Java, Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) to German parents. Some sources give her birth name as Marta Maria Lillits or Martha Seubert. Her father, Adolf Karl Ludwig Moritz Seubert, born in Karlsruhe/Baden Germany, was a forest ranger in the service of the Dutch colonial authorities. She had two siblings. Her mother died in 1897, after which she returned to Germany where she lived with relatives in Tübingen. She was educated at boarding schools in Baden-Baden, Weimar, and Geneva, Switzerland. Orphaned at the age of 13, she spent the rest of her adolescence with friends and relatives.After completing her education she began pursuing a career as a stage actress around the principal cities of Europe. In 1907 she married actor Fritz Gustav Josef Daghofer, who was fifteen years her senior. The couple divorced in 1919 and the union produced a daughter, Eva Marie, born in 1909. Eva Marie went on to marry Hungarian director Géza von Radványi in 1930.Seubert began using a variant of her husband's surname as a professional moniker – changing the spelling of 'Daghofer' to 'Dagover'.
